Archant

Congratulations are due to Great Yarmouth Borough Council this summer for making such a good job of raking the beach on Yarmouth’s North Beach by the Salisbury Road boardwalk and the Beaconsfield Road and Sandown Road ramps.

The clearings in those locations make the beach look a whole lot more attractive for locals and holidaymakers alike.

Done to a good standard too.

Well done!
