Posted on Sep 13, 2016 in Tourism & Communication

The end of the season is upon us and it has to be said what a great summer we have had this year with many events on and the swimming pool being extremely busy and the whole of the promenade full of locals and visitors. Nice to see many coaches on day trips coming from all over the country. Reports from many of the restaurants are saying business has been very brisk. The Town Show and Classic Car Show bought many into the town as well. Congratulations to all involved. A meeting with local businesses will be taking place to carry on...

As members of Visit Essex they will shortly be hosting a show for Group Travel Organisers (GTOs) and we will have the Town Guide distributed at this event. It would be far too expensive to have a stand at these shows. We are currently going through a list of BB’s which are in the Suffolk and Essex area to send the guide to. This year Brightlingsea will also be included in the Tendring Twinning Association’s booklet, which represents all the different and diverse communities that comprise the Tendring...
