Where about do you live mate? I'm situated in the Midlands, but don't mind the odd bit of travelling. Depends what beach you're thinking / when!

Too far South for me but wish you well.

Might help if you put the area in the title. See your based in Luton about as central as you can get

Oooh, free parking always a bonus, when I went to clacton it was £10 for the day... Didn't bother to stop for lunch...

Although I did buy some nibbles to take on the beach with me...

So for everyone's information,
At Frinton beach, 20th January 2018,

The low tide is at 7.23am and High tide at 1.45pm.

I will be aiming to get there early maybe about 6am, so I can find parking, set up etc.

How many are planning on coming?
I'll make some flapjack 😁😎 lol

"I'll make some flapjack"
Baking's fun .... but if you have a B&M or HomeBargains store near you, you should take a look at their Higates flapjacks, just 19p for a 75 g bar, and 29p for a 125g bar. Very cheap.
