  • #BottleShipsGY moor up at their final destinations

    An innovative campaign to reduce plastics left on local beaches has launched today, with the aim of highlighting the importance of disposing of waste correctly.

    Three new permanent #BottleShipsGY art installations have been installed in Great Yarmouth, Hemsby and Gorleston aimed at encouraging beachgoers to dispose of their plastic drinks bottles correctly, preventing them from entering the sea.

    Each ship has been designed by artists Hatty + Young and has been inspired by vessels that form part of our proud maritime history, featuring plaques with historic information on each ship. Great Yarmouth Jetty saw the arrival of HMS Elephant, the Lydia Eva landed in Gorleston and Hemsby pays homage to its lifeboat, Sea Weaver. The BottleShips will fill with plastic bottles which will be collected for recycling.

  • Great Yarmouth Mayor buries time capsule for future residents to discover

    Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Cllr Graham Plant, has buried a time capsule full of memories relating to the last few years at Great Yarmouth’s new £26m swimming, sports, and leisure centre.

    Back in 2021, the council invited members of the community to share their ideas on what they think should be included in a time capsule to be buried under the performance area in the new Marina Centre.

    Items which will be buried in the capsule include events on a national such as Coronavirus updates, the Queen’s Jubilee and the 2021 census. There is also local news such as the media coverage for Visit Great Yarmouth Wheels Festival 2022, photos of the Marina Centre from the past, present and artists impressions and a photo of the current Mayor and Mayoress of Great Yarmouth, Cllr Plant, and his wife.

  • £20m riverside gateway project to unlock potential of eyesore site

    Plans to regenerate a riverside gateway site in Great Yarmouth are expected to take an important step forward next week with a move to compulsorily purchase parts of the site.

    Great Yarmouth Borough Council has been working on proposals to transform the North Quay area into an exciting new waterfront quarter, turning the eyesore area into an attractive entrance to the town.

    The four hectares of land is currently in piecemeal ownership and negotiations to bring the land together have been slow.

    Now the council is proposing to use compulsory purchase powers to buy up the land so that its masterplan for the site can be made a reality.

  • Pier to Pier walkers raise more than £40,000 for EACH

    Spirited fundraisers rallied together to complete an epic walking challenge and raise more than £40,000 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

    The charity’s Pier to Pier event was a 32-mile trek along the beautiful Norfolk Coastal Path. More than 160 people took part, starting in Cromer and wearily finishing several hours later in Great Yarmouth.

    EACH events fundraiser Hannah Forbester said: “It was a huge success and we were delighted to raise more than £40,000. The support was fantastic and I loved seeing everyone rally together. There was a real sense of camaraderie and so much encouragement along the way. Prior to the walk, there had been lots of chatting in the event Facebook group. There was a real sense of excitement and it was lovely for people to meet up and share the experience on the day. The feedback after the event was very positive, too. It’s a huge challenge, both mentally and physically, and, understandably, there were a few nerves. However, everyone looked out for each other and the bigger groups buddied up with individuals and couples walking alone. There was a strong team ethic and everyone was determined to help each other over the finish line.”
