The people of Hunstanton are being asked to get involved in providing input and feedback into the second stage of the bid for a grant to restore the town’s Heritage Gardens.

West Norfolk Council is seeking money from the Heritage Lottery Fund for the project.

After successfully gaining initial funding, the council is now preparing a detailed bid for funding a project based on the seafront gardens in Hunstanton.

The project will be centered on The Green and adjoining network of public open spaces, including The Esplanade Gardens and Cliff Parade.

Local people will initially be able to help by attending an introduction to the project at an open meeting running from 5-8pm on Thursday, 
October 15, at the Golden Lion Hotel, The Green, Hunstanton, and will then be encouraged to share their opinions, ideas and memories.

Paul Beal, cabinet member for coast and tourism, said: “This is a really exciting project for the town.

“I hope people will take part in the consultation, especially to share their stories at the first event and later to let us know what they think of our initial designs.”

The main consultation event will also be held at the Golden Lion, and is scheduled to run in two sessions on 
Saturday, October 24, from 11am- 3pm and from 5-7pm.
