Default The beach is in a terrible state.

The beach is in a terrible state after the recent storms, it's going to take a lot of hard work to put it right .

It seems to be calming down now but we have had some hefty showers today and so far the electricity has stayed on .

I have not heard of any injuries to people thankfully.
Although the wind is due to calm down from tomorrow it is only a brief respite as it's forecast to return at the end of the week. Because of this i doubt that there will be much clearing up done.

The diggers are out at either end of the beach making a start to clearing seaweed. Maybe they will build it up to form a protective barrier.

We followed a convoy of trailers yesterday which were loaded with seaweed. What do they do with it?

In Jersey it was always used on the potato fields so perhaps it will help there

I hope they have good weather after this as the beach really took a lot of damage this year Has the Pine Walk all been repaired as well ?

I wont have to panic about the sun beds this year !
