East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s foreshores office in Bridlington has moved – the team now reside in offices next door to their previous office, on South Promenade!
The Foreshores team moved into their previous accommodation whilst the Bridlington Spa redevelopment was underway, as the office block was demolished. The small office in the deckchair store did not provide the Foreshores team with adequate office space, as the team evolved. When the RNLI moved into their new bespoke office in the town, it was the ideal opportunity to upgrade the facilities for the Foreshores team.
Managed by Kirsty Salisbury, the foreshores team have a broad role, from promoting the hugely popular chalets available to hire all year round in several locations in Bridlington and Hornsea, to providing paddling pools and similar facilities, and also enforcing byelaws where required, relating to such issues as whether dogs are allowed on beaches.
The chalets can be booked online at www.eastriding.gov.uk/chalet-booking, where full details of prices, facilities and availability can also be found.
The foreshores team also run the popular seafront land trains in Bridlington – the north side train runs from East Riding Leisure Bridlington to Sewerby Hall and Gardens, and the south side train from Bridlington Spa to South Cliff beach. The trains run daily from Easter to the end of September.
Making the promenades, chalets and beaches accessible to all is a key role of the team, who provide lightweight, all-terrain beach wheelchairs free of charge (with a refundable deposit) and the All Ride Scheme aimed at people with disabilities, offering adapted bikes and safe cycle routes along the North Promenade in Bridlington. Bookings for All Ride and the beach wheelchair can be made via the foreshores team.
Dogs are welcome on Bridlington beaches, but there are some restrictions, and the foreshores team are there to enforce them and ensure that beach and promenade users can enjoy the resort at its best. Dogs are not permitted on the beaches from 1 May to 30 September, and must be on leads on the adjacent promenades.
Maintaining clean paddling pools, and caring for the promenades at the key East Riding resorts is another major part of the team’s remit – essential to maintain the image of the East Coast for tourists and residents alike. Part and parcel of this is maintaining vital life-saving equipment. Keeping the beaches clean and safe is another part of the team’s role.
