Save Hemsby Coastline Rock Berm Now



Members of Save Hemsby Coastline and Hembsy Independent Rescue Service were proud to deliver the signatures of 16,714 residents and holidaymakers to No10 Downing Street. Our thanks to all of you who took the time to sign our petition and show that you love Hemsby and want the coastline protected for future generations.

Our request was straightforward - we need the Government to step in and change the criteria used to decide on funding and give Hemsby the sea defenses that it desperately needs.

Afterward, we had the opportunity to meet with Emma Hardy, Shadow Minister for Environmental Quality and Resilience, to discuss the situation here in Hemsby and congratulate her on the impassioned speech she gave at the end of the Westminster Debate in December.


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.
