Here comes the summer: Worthing Seafront takes shape for the season

Released: Tuesday, 02 April 2019

“We're ready for a super seafront summer!” That was the message from Worthing Borough Council today ahead of the school holidays as it unveiled the work being completed to get the seafront ship-shape for the season ahead.

All through the winter and into the spring Council teams have been busy repairing wooden structures, planting garden beds, organising a wealth of summer activities and awarding concessions.

One hundred seats across the seafront and town centre, as well as seafront shelters, railings and walls, are getting a fresh lick of paint. Shrub replanting and wildflower seeding is taking place and foreshore work being carried out.

As for activities: the alfresco cinema is coming back and the Summer of Circus is planning free outdoor events. The fantastically successful donkey bikes can now be used for A to B journeys and there will be foodie hotspots, outdoor and rainy day events and arts and culture activities.

Altogether dozens of workers across the parks departments, tourism office, beach office and maintenance teams have been a common sight down on the seafront making sure, when the dust sheets come off this Easter, the seafront will be spic and span.

Worthing Borough Council Visitor Experience and Marketing Officer, Judy Fox, said,

“We all know our seafront is the jewel in the crown of our tourism offer enjoyed by visitors and residents alike. That's why it is important we do all we can to have it looking its very best in time for the Easter holidays, and then keep it looking fantastic across the summer.

“We're looking forward to welcoming everyone and hope they enjoy discovering Worthing and all that the town has to offer.
