The local community has been hard at work ensuring Sheringham Beach looks its best for the thousands of visitors who will enjoy it during the summer months.
Getting Ready for Summer 2014
The short section of Sheringham’s West Promenade that was all but demolished in last December’s storm surge was rebuilt a couple of months ago along with some reconstruction work of the adjacent embankment.
The damaged railings along the entire stretch of the promenade were replaced this week.
Ellies Beach Café has reopened, with a smart new paint job. It’s a great place to stop off for an ice-cream or a cup of tea whilst walking along the promenade, with a perfect sea view.
There are some smart new murals designed and painted by students of Sheringham Primary School under the guidance of Kate Munro in the shelter on the East Promenade near Funky Mackerel. These capture Sheringham perfectly, with brightly coloured beach huts and seagulls set against a backdrop of cliffs and, of course, a wonderfully blue sky.
Colin created murals for the Disney theme parks in Florida and has painted murals around Sheringham for the last 12 years.
The mural is next to another new one by Colin of local women Sally Middleton, who was part of one of the great fishing families in Sheringham back in the early 1900s.
