Here’s a chap to look out for when you are out and about on the coast.
Alex Ellis-Roswell is walking 100 miles down the Norfolk coast to raise money for the six RNLI lifeboat stations in the area. He started walking round the 9,500-mile coast of England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Isle of Man on August 3, with the aim to raise £10 for every mile he walks. He has raised around £60,000 for RNLI lifeboats.
He said: “If you see me walking over the next few weeks please donate/ beep/ wave/ thumbs up/ tea. And if you can offer somewhere dry and warm to sleep at night, please comment or message,” he said.
On the evening that England lost to Iceland and dropped out of the Euros, more than 110 people gathered at Cromer beach in a photo that definitely does give us something to be proud of!
This North Norfolk emergency services and lifesavers photo was taken by Chris Taylor and organised by RNLI lifeguard manager Vincent Pank.
The photo features (amongst others) representatives from RNLI Lifeguards, Sheringham RNLI, Cromer RNLI, RNLI Face to Face team, HM Coastguard teams, Norfolk Police, Norfolk Fire Service, East Anglian Air Ambulance, East of England Ambulance Service & Broads Beat.
The RNLI Henry Blogg Museum in Cromer is holding two free drop-in creative sessions on Saturday 6 and Saturday 13 April. Children are encouraged to visit the museum on these days to make their own seaside favourite.
