The ongoing collapse of old access road after recent erosion - thanks to Hemsby Independent Lifeboat for making this safe last night - 25th May 2023

SW Wind brings devastation to the Gap beach access, Lifeboat team sadly confirmed that they cannot launch for the foreseeable future. 

The aim is to raise public awareness of the coastal erosion plight facing Hemsby and to raise funds to help protect our dunes, coastline and livelihoods!

The village of Hemsby in Norfolk is a victim of coastal erosion after high tides swept away more homes. More than eight feet of the beach has disappeared from Hemsby near Great Yarmouth in recent months and the fear that more could go - is happening.


Help build our funds to fight on!

Hemsby contributes £88M to Norfolk’s economy each year from its tourism-based infrastructure.

But we are at a tipping point. Lack of action now will mean the beach continues to vanish, in turn leading to economic and social damage to the village and a knock-on effect to Norfolk

Every pound that you can give will make a big difference


How you can add your voice!

The people of Hemsby have been hit again by erosion to their beach. Again homes have been lost and businesses impacted. The solution is known and costed. We need a rock berm for our whole beachfront and we need it now.

We need central government to step in and take ownership of the problem. We need action now.

Hemsby Independent Lifeboat and Save Hemsby Coastline are working together to protect our village.


We need everyone's voice!

The coastal erosion facing Hemsby has been well covered recently by News teams both locally and nationally and has been featured on BBC Radio NorfolkBBC Look East, Anglian News and in the papers such as The Guardian G2 and Eastern Daily Press.

We now need your help to keep the spotlight on Hemsby. Follow this link to be updated with our activities along the path to our goal of a permanent rock-berm for Hemsby.
