Facilities Projects 2014/2015

Hemsby Village Sign

Hemsby & Newport has more visitor beds than Brighton and represents one of the highest concentration of self-catering visitor accommodation in Europe.

Filby In Bloom

National Award winning Filby in Bloom is one of the wonders of the Borough and a magnet for 1000s of visitors a year. It has become an attraction in its own right. GYTABIA is keen to help with Filby in Bloom’s continued success.

The Welcome Host service based at Great Yarmouth Vauxhall Station

This provides a welcome for inbound passengers with information and advice about the area and its attractions. The service is staffed by volunteers who are all trained to the Olympic ‘Gamesmakers’ standards in customer service.

Gorleston In Bloom

Hanging baskets are aimed to make Gorleston High Street a nicer environment in which to shop and trade thereby encouraging increased footfall to the area.

Ivy Lodge Project, Gorleston

The overarching goal is to get the currently derelict Ivy Lodge in Priory Gardens transformed into a functioning Heritage tearoom and offer work experience placements to young adults with learning disabilities.

Decorative Lighting

On the 2nd May one of GYTABIAs early projects – new decorative lighting for the seafront in Great Yarmouth – was officially switched on by Her Worship the Mayor of the Borough of Great Yarmouth. The switch-on was also marked by the first fireworks display of the season.
