North Norfolk businesses are predicting their busiest summer yet after the scorching weekend saw sun seekers flock to the coast.

After a bumper weekend reaching highs of 30 degrees, the stream of beach goers showed no sign of stopping with customers queuing into the streets to purchase treats at their favourite eateries.

Holly Swann is the manager of Cromer’s infamous No.1 Fish and Chips restaurant in Cromer.

Ms Swann said: “It was one of our busiest weekends to date this past weekend.

“We saw the forecast though and we knew it was going to be busy, so we were well prepared so that we didn’t run out of anything!”

Looking ahead to the rest of the summer months, the Cromer resident added: “I think this is going to be one of our businest seasons yet.

“North Norfolk is getting more and more popular each year as a destination, and I think businesses in this area will have a great season because of it.” The 37-year-old continued: “We’re really busy throughout the day, and it’s only going to get busier as the schools break up and people drive to the coast for their holidays.”
