The council’s foreshores and tourism teams are working to ensure that beaches, promenades, toilets and all the other facilities they look after – including the crazy golf on Bridlington south bay, the land trains and the Park and Ride service – are clean, welcoming and above all safe for the large numbers of tourists and residents expected over the summer.
Together with the newly relocated Tourist Information Centre, the council teams are gearing up for an expected influx of visitors this year, sampling the new East Riding Leisure Bridlington, Sewerby Hall and Gardens, and entertainment throughout the summer at The Spa Bridlington, as well as the town’s award winning beaches, promenade walks, and stunning views.
Councillor Jane Evison, portfolio holder for economic investment and tourism, said : “We are really looking forward to the summer season this year, with a very positive feeling right across the town. All the indications are that, with some decent weather, the recent and ongoing investment in Bridlington will see lots of people coming to sample what’s on offer here. And we are ready!
“We always work tirelessly to ensure that Bridlington is at its absolute best for our visitors and residents, and of course to ensure the safety of everybody who comes to visit or to stay. For instance, the lifeguard service is once again operating at our beaches this holiday season, which is a great partnership between the council, HM Coastguard, the RNLI and Humberside Police.”
Dog owners are reminded that, for the safety and comfort of all beach users, dogs are permitted on certain areas of the beach only during the summer months.For full details of summer in Bridlington, visit the newly relocated Tourist Information Centre at East Riding Leisure Bridlington –http://www.eastridingleisure.co.uk/bridlington/
