Burnham: Councillors opt to coin it in
Burnham town councillors were given the decision on who to give free commemorative gold coins to - and decided to distribute them amongst themselves.
The council has around 70 gold coins spare from the jubilee celebrations and used last week’s town council meeting to discuss who to give them to.
Town Clerk, David McNeill, said: “I think the town council deliberated on the Jubilee over many many meetings so I see no reason why we can’t have one.”
It was also suggested to give some of the coins to French visitors in October and to members of the British Legion.
The final decision will be made at a future town council meeting.
