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.
What a coincidence, workmen came along to fix the long-neglected broken barrier to the “killer wall” at George Street and thereby obviated yet another letter of criticism, which could have been published on the same day.
I am local and a keen amateur photographer. I was taking my elderly father out for the day on Saturday. After fruit picking at Blofield and en route to Horsey Mill, dad wanted to go to Thurne. I saw this beautiful view at Oby and had to pull over in a passing place to take this snap on my iPhone.
We moved to Rollesby nearly three years ago and were very happy to see the Broads were made a National Park area. Well, we feel very let down with the state of the area, no-one maintains the footpath or the trees and growth beside it.
My thoughts on seagulls. They are magnificent birds. Yes, I totally agree that many people do not discard their waste correctly. Every morning I walk through town to the office and all I see is private or commercial bins overflowing, bin lids not closed properly or there’s too much rubbish so it is left by the side of the bins on the pavements or roads.
I, together with my husband, voluntarily plant up and tend weekly to the two community gardens on the corner of Bracon Road/New Road in Belton and have done so for the past six years without too much damage.
Reading about the discovery of human remains on the site of the new Wetherspoon’s development in Gorleston High Street reminded me of an incident when I was a pupil at Cliff Park Secondary Modern School in the 1960s.
Seventy-five years ago, St Nicholas’ Church was gutted by incendiary bombs. This important event, on Sunday, June 25, 1942, is being commemorated by the Minster Preservation Trust with a series of events based on a 1940’s theme.
