Planning for BeachLife started last autumn following the cancellation of the Scripture Union Beach Mission, which had been running for 100 years.

And organised by the churches in the town the event was run by 40 volunteers from the churches and supported by Scripture Union.

Organiser Pete Skivington said: “We had been praying that we would attract at least 100 people and when we counted up we found that over 140 young people and children had attended at least one event during the week.”

The activities kicked off each day with the Beach Special, where all ages came together at the cliff-top marquee on The Lees for music, games, drama and fun, and to introduce the day’s theme.

Evening activities for over eleven’s included a treasure hunt around the town, swimming at Splash and a quiz and chips evening.

Mr Skivington added: “BeachLife has been a huge success and we intend to build on this for next year’s BeachLife as well as in the coming years.”

● Next year’s mission will run from August 27-30. For more information visit www.sheringhambeachlife.co.uk or contact Mr Skivington by emailing youth@sheringhambaptistchurch.co.uk or ringing 07919 415554.
