An upcoming event at the North Sea Observatory in Chapel St Leonards will be showcasing everything the Lincolnshire coast has to offer this summer.
On Wednesday 10 July, the county council is hosting a special event at the North Sea Observatory in Chapel St Leonards to mark the start of the summer season, alongside representatives from East Lindsey District Council and Lincolnshire Coastal Destination BID.
Cllr Colin Davie, executive member for economy and place, said: “For generations, Lincolnshire’s seaside towns have been among the UK’s most popular holiday destinations, and they continue to evolve, offering more and more to visitors each year.
“They are the bedrock of our tourism industry, which brings in around £1.5bn to the local economy each year, and their success deserves to be celebrated.
“However, we also want to take the opportunity to remind people that our wonderful coast has much more to offer, and where better to do that than at the fantastic North Sea Observatory.
“During the warmer months, our unspoilt beaches are the ideal location for paddling, picnics, sandcastles, beach cricket and kite flying.
“But there are great opportunities for walking, cycling, and bird watching all year round, and a wealth of wildlife and plant-life to explore.
“And those with an interest in the natural world will love the recently revamped Gibraltar Point and our many other nature reserves.
“Of course, we’d also recommend visitors take the time to go inland and visit some of our lovely village pubs and historic market towns, or add variety to their walks or cycle rides by covering the coastal grazing marshes and the Lincolnshire Wolds.
“We hope that by showcasing the exciting combination of our traditional seaside towns and the many wonders of our natural coast we’ll be able to attract new visitors, boosting the local tourism economy.”
