The Beach where I live.
An award winning team of gardeners hopes sand from Frinton will help them to medal sucess at the Chelsea Flower Show.
About 15 sacks from the towns beach will be transported to London so the team from Bishops Stortford can recreate a 1950s beach.
The 20sqm garden will be edged with authentic reclaimed groynes,with a rockpool filled with seaside plants and the Frinton sands.
It will sit with genuine 1950s memorabilia such as a bucket and spade,deckchair and flask.
The teams plan was under threat because it is diffcult to get real beach sand.
Most beaches are owned by the Crown Estate but Tendering Council leases Frinton beach and gave it’s blessing.
