Coastal forum celebrates eleven years making difference

Life's a beach for members
 of the coastal forum.
A celebratory event is being organised to mark the 11th anniversary of the North Yorkshire and Cleveland Coastal Forum at the Scarborough Spa on Thursday 12 September.

The forum represents various interest groups and individuals that exist along the coastline of North Yorkshire and Cleveland.

It stages an annual conference to update members on local and national coastal issues.

This year's presentations will be on coastal access and the major new waste water treatment scheme for Scarborough as well as the wealth of schemes that have been paid for via the European funding to improve the coastline and villages.

Also on show will be the popular Sand in Your Eye sand and ice sculpture team, who will be on hand to show some of their work with an opportunity to get artistic with them in the afternoon on the beach below the Spa.

Yorkshire Water’s contractors will be giving a guided tour of the new works along the Marine Drive.

Forum chairman councillor Godfrey Allanson said; "Over the years, we’ve had many and varied speakers come to talk to us about lots of interesting aspects of coastal management. The conferences are always inspiring and it’s a chance to meet with everyone who shares a common interest – caring for the local coastline."

The event starts at 9.45am and is open to all but organisers are asking people to book in advance if they’ve not attended previously.
