RNLI Boxing Day Swim 2011

Crowds heading to the beach to see the swimmers at the RNLI fund raising event.

The two lifeboats in attendance.

It was so crowded the swimmers couldn't be seen !!!
But it was a lovely warm day and it made a welcome breath of fresh air, before returning home to eat another Christmas meal.

Mersea Beach Huts

Great news that Colchester Council have accepted the view of local residents by deciding not to proceed with the planning application for a further 30 "coastal cabins" on the Victoria Esplanade greensward.

Cllr Tina Dopson, Portfolio Holder for Communities and Diversity said,

"I can confirm that the planning application for 30 beach huts, at the Victoria Esplanade Car Park on West Mersea, has been withdrawn today.

Having reflected on the weight of public opinion surrounding this application this decision has been made with careful consideration."
