Cromer pier’s conga call to action

A reminder rallying call has gone out to help Cromer chalk up a world record next weekend - by hosting the biggest conga dance on its pier.

On Saturday March 12 the landmark venue is hoping to attract hundreds, or even thousands, of people to head to the resort join in the fun.

The aim is to beat rivals Bournemouth in a head-to-head bid to land the record during British Tourism Week's party on the Pier event.

Thirty six of the nation's 55 seaside piers are taking part in the event aimed at celebrating piers and their heritage.

Great Yarmouth's Wellington Pier is staging family fun, from majorettes, magic, clowning and balloon modelling as well as jazz from noon to 4pm.

Cromer's conga session is at 11am, but participants are being asked to be there by 10.45am at the latest so lines can be organised, and numbers counted.

The North Norfolk pier is the underdog in the battle as Bournemouth is 20 times bigger, so Cromer pier general manager Ian Hall is urging people from across North Norfolk and beyond to turn up help the cause.
