Bude Beach Meeting
7:02am 27th July 2013
There are calls for some blue-sea thinking in Bude.
The council wants to know how locals think the town's beaches should be managed in the future.
An information day is being held at the Parkhouse Centre on Saturday 20th July between 10am and 6pm, talking about Crooklets and Summerleaze.
"This is a great opportunity to have your say on the future of Bude's coastal areas" said Cathy Lowe, from Cornwall Council's Environment Service. "Members of the Project Team will be on hand to answer questions about the project as well as help with the interactive areas which will look at beach hut design, what makes Bude special and growing local businesses."
Just after the opening ceremony at 10am, the winners of two school competitions will be announced by Paula Dolphin, the Mayor of Bude Stratton and Cornwall Councillor for Grenville & Stratton electoral division. Around 180 youngsters from Bude Infants School were asked to design a poster with their ideas for new beach huts, while students from years 7 and 9 at Budehaven Community School were asked to design presentations on their thoughts for improving the coastal assets. All posters and presentations entered into the competition will be on display throughout the event.
Paula said: "Bude coast is vital to our tourism. It is important that residents and beach users have their say on what can be improved and on what they are happy with."
