New Benches at the Foreshore

This week the Council took back another part of the Foreshore that has been renovated by the appointed contractors TM Construction.

This area is at the start of the Dinghy Park adjacent to the beach café. Three of the old concrete seats and the concrete plinths they stood on have been removed.

This was then squared off and three new bench seats, in keeping with the others, were installed on the Foreshore.

These seats are fully accessible for both wheelchairs and buggies, with reserved areas for both.

We hope you enjoy making use of the new benches.
