1 .Good morning. This is Burnham tourist office, Martin speaking.
1 .Oh, hello.I saw a poster about free things to do in the area, and it said people should phone you for information.
2 .I'm coming to Burnham with my husband and two children for a few days on June the 27th,
3 .or possibly the 28th, and I'd like some ideas for things to do on the 29th.
1 .Yes, of course. OK.
2 .Then let's start with a couple of events especially for children.
3 .The art gallery is holding an event called 'Family Welcome' that day, when there are activities and trails to use throughout the gallery.
1 .That sounds interesting.
2 .What time does it start?
1 .The gallery opens at 10, and the 'Family Welcome' event runs from 10:30 until 2 o'clock.
2 .The gallery stays open until 5.
3 .And several times during the day, they're going to show a short film that the gallery has produced.
4 .It demonstrates how ceramics are made, and there'll be equipment and materials for children to have a go themselves.
5 .Last time they ran the event, there was a film about painting,
6 .which went down very well with the children, and they're now working on one about sculpture.
1 .I like the sound of that.
2 .And what other events happen in Burnham?
1 .Well, do you all enjoy listening to music?
1 .Oh, yes.
1 .Well there are several free concerts taking place at different times - one or two in the morning,
2 .the majority at lunchtime, and a couple in the evening.
3 .And they range from pop music to Latin American.
1 .The Latin American could be fun.
2 .What time is that?
1 .It's being repeated several times, in different places.
2 .They're performing in the central library at 1 o'clock, then at 4 it's in the City Museum,
3 .and in the evening, at 7.30, there's a longer concert, in the theatre.
1 .Right. I'll suggest that to the rest of the family.
1 .Something else you might be interested in is the boat race along the river.
1 .Oh, yes, do tell me about that.
1 .The race starts at Offord Marina, to the north of Burnham, and goes as far as Summer Pool.
2 .The best place to watch it from is Charlesworth Bridge, though that does get rather crowded.
1 .And who's taking part?
1 .Well, local boat clubs, but the standard is very high.
2 .One of them came first in the West of England regional championship in May this year - it was the first time a team from Burnham has won.
3 .It means that next year they'll be representing the region in the national championship.
1 .Now I've heard something about Paxton Nature Reserve.
2 .It's a good place for spotting unusual birds, isn't it?
1 .That's right - throughout the year.
2 .There is a lake there, as well as a river, and they provide a very attractive habitat.
3 .So it's a good idea to bring binoculars if you have them.
4 .And just at the moment you can see various flowers that are pretty unusual - the soil at Paxton isn't very common.
5 .They're looking good right now.
1 .Right. My husband will be particularly interested in that.
1 .And there's going to be a talk and slide show about mushrooms - and you'll be able to go out and pick some afterwards and study the different varieties.
1 .Uhuh. And is it possible for children to swim in the river?
1 .Yes. Part of it has been fenced off to make it safe for children to swim in.
2 .It's very shallow, and there's a lifeguard on duty whenever it's open.
3 .The lake is too deep, so swimming isn't allowed there.
1 .OK, we must remember to bring their swimming things, in case we go to Paxton.
2 .How long does it take to get there by car from Burnham?
1 .About 20 minutes, but parking is very limited, so it's usually much easier to go by bus - and it takes about the same time.
1 .Right. Well, I'll discuss the options with the rest of the family.
2 .Thanks very much for all your help.
1 .You're welcome.
