Coastal Erosion

   The Future


  A great big thank you

When I originally started this venture I had no idea what a rollercoaster ride of confusion, frustration and elation it would be.

From the lack of funding available to good causes due to the Olympics through to the red tape bureaucracy of planning and health and safety. 

On the positive side however there were a great many organisations, companies and individuals who gave their time to provide advice, support and services.

We wouldn't have got anywhere without your help and I would like your assistance to be recognised and remembered.

Thank you to you all.
