‘Really loved the Coastal Capers day we live in Sheringham and had never been here before. Liked it so much we’re coming back on Tuesday to do the trail."

Grant awarded - £450

The event engaged and educated children and adults about the amazing array of marine wildlife found in the chalk reef system (the longest in Europe) which runs for twenty miles alongside the North Norfolk Coast.  Activities encouraged people to learn about the Living Seas and marine protection areas.  Sessions also addressed topics including waste disposal, traditional fishing, coastal storytelling, marine animals and sea birds.


500 people attended the Cley Visitor Centre on the Coastal Capers day and at least 300 engaged with some of the activities during the day. NWT Visitor Centre staff noted that the average visitor stay at the centre was increased on average by an hour but in some cases considerably more than that due to the range of activities on offer through the Coastal Capers day.

Coastal Capers participants learnt about the importance of marine biodiversity on the Norfolk Coast and the fragile nature of local marine habitats and how our behaviour interrelates with this. Feedback indicated that they werey inspired to protect the marine environment.
