Currently a temporary solution of "voluntary" contributions is being implemented on Norfolk’s beaches between Hunstanton South and Wolferton Creek for the annual flood defence beach recycle, held up by the Environment Agency as a workable pilot.
Dressed as Magi, members of the St Edmund’s Hunstanton congregation re-enacted the visit and presentation of the gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the infant Jesus.
Supporters of Refill Hunstanton started the year as they mean to go on with a litter pick at Old Hunstanton Beach with kind permission from Le Strange Estates on New Year’s Day. Amongst the items found were bottles, both plastic and glass, dog poo bags both full and empty, plastic and polystyrene. A fish stranded on the beach was also rescued.
For over sixty years brave swimmers have taken the plunge on Christmas Day in Hunstanton and this year 143 swimmers in fancy dress were supported by a crowd of over three thousand spectators.
In 2012 a consortium led by Brian Hallard took over the running of Hunstanton's Princess Theatre. For the first three years a Christmas show, produced by Michele Larkin, proved hugely successful in attracting school parties. In 2015 it was decided to stage a pantomime, and 'Aladdin' was a great success. Last year it was 'Jack and the Beanstalk', and this year 'Cinderella' is bringing in school parties from near and far.
