• Brightlingsea Regatta and Boat Show on July 4/5 is a good opportunity for local firms/businesses to promote themselves with a stall. Although a deposit needed to reserve this will be returned for locals. With the right weather a crowd of several thousand is expected over the 2 days. Supported financially by Brightlingsea Town Council.
  • Not exactly sure this is the correct area but there appears to be an on-going problem with the railway gates at the Thorrington train crossing. It is reported that it is not unusual for the gates to be closed longer than needed and times of 10/12 minutes have been quoted to me. Would be interested in any reports, especially from any business interests who are having issues.
