On Saturday, April 16 PC Barries Sills, the Yarmouth town centre beat manager, will be at Joyland between 11am and noon.

The public engagement event is part of an on-going series of sessions allowing people to meet their local beat officers and raise any issues or concerns they have, or just have a friendly chat. 

A statement from Great Yarmouth Police said: "PC Barrie Sills, Yarmouth town centre beat manager will be speaking to members of the public on Saturday 16 April 2022.

"Come and have a chat with him at Joyland on the seafront between 11am -12."

Joyland was opened in 1949 and its famous snail trail was designed and built by Horace Cole.
