Summerleaze beach/pool steps

Work is due to start on repairing the steps up from Summerleaze beach as soon after Easter Monday as tides and weather will allow. This is to allow for work to be finished in time for May half term, 27th -31st May.
Access up these steps will be out of action for the whole time, therefore access will be across the beach and up the far wall, or middle beach steps, or from the Downs and around to the far side for middle beach steps. Signs will be put up closer to the time.
