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.

Starting as per 2016, at the Vauxhall Holiday park, calling at Vauxhall rail station, Market Gates, Time and Tide Museum, turn right onto seafront for Merrivale Model Village, to stops for the Pleasure Beach – possibly Nelson’s Column, then a Uturn, and all along the seafront with the stops of 2016/2017 to the Haven Seashore Holiday Park, back to Market Gates via Britannia Pier, Hollywood Cinema, Euston Road and onto the rail station and Acle Straight for the Vauxhall Holiday Park, ready to start again.

This would give holidaymakers and locals a completely accessible tour of the town and its amenities. Am I getting too carried away with the thoughts of other services covering Hemsby and Gorleston beaches?
