Push to bring back port’s ferry service


We’re all great for signage these days.


Age Connected at the Acorn Centre in Regent Street, Great Yarmouth, welcome their new Older People’s Development Worker Diane Steels.


If Great Yarmouth is to enjoy another season of an open top bus operating in the town, compared to Skegness’ approximately 17 buses in open top service, could we please revert to the comprehensive route given in its first year of operation in 2016 and not as last year of just trundling up and down the seafront.

Lots of readers’ letters this week covering a host of subjects from coastal erosion to mobility scooters with two people on board!


There are many plants and trees that will grow near salt water, some are very environmentally friendly taking carbon out of the atmosphere.

Transformation of Yarmouth line


I love travelling by train. I love the fact we pass through countryside, and see little traffic on the way - and there are no dual carriageways.


Mini-revival in the town is welcomed

Brandon Lewis

I’m a member of the Civic Society of Great Yarmouth; there, I’ve said it. I admit it.

“Goodbye eye.” These were among the last words I muttered to myself as the world’s leading ophthalmic surgeons sent me to sleep in Moorfields Eye Hospital.

I have spent a number of years voicing my concern on the subject of aggregate extraction by vacuuming suction all off the east coast and east of Great Yarmouth.


Beach praised, and then it’s scoured


Rubbish bins for new road please


The recording of wildlife has for many years been very important to me.
