Sheringham: fifth summer for beach-based outreach event

Final preparations are underway for this year's BeachLife activity outreach on Sheringham's cliff top and beach later this month. Bumper crowds are expected, and there is no charge to join in the fun. Tony Rothe reports for Network Norwich.

BeachLife is a joint venture by the churches in Sheringham, aimed at engaging with local youngsters, as well as holidaymakers, and this will be its fifth summer. It will run from Tuesday August 30 to Friday September 02. The event is open to all ages up to 17.

Daily activities will start with the “Beach Special” at 10.30am every day except Friday, where all ages come together at the cliff-top marquee on The Leas for music, games, drama and fun, and to introduce the day’s theme, which this year is the Rio Olympics.

The children and young people then split into age-groups for their “Going Deeper” sessions to explore that day’s theme in more depth before breaking for lunch. On the Friday, the morning starts at 10.30am with the Going Deeper sessions. The afternoons comprise of beach games and sports, giant inflatables including the Demolition Ball, a family buffet with Samba band, and the tide fight.   Evening activities for young people will include a quiz night with chips, carnival crafts, a “Sheropoly” challenge around the town, and swimming at "The Splash".  

“This has become one of the major events in the town's calendar” said Peter Skivington, one of the organisers. “Not only does this provide an opportunity for the churches to engage with local youngsters, but we provide a great week for visitors as well. We already have people asking when next year's BeachLife is so that they can plan their holidays to Sheringham.”

Those wishing to attend can download a form from www.sheringhambeachlife.co.uk and bring it with them to save time on the day. Alternatively, although anyone can just come along and register on the morning, from 10.15am. The website also gives more information about the event, and contact details.
