The Windsurfing Beach – 2017 and beyond

In August 2016 it came as a bit of a shock to learn our beach landlord had decided to sell the northern part of Hickling Broad, which naturally raised concerns with us, our neighbours, and other water users too.

The Norfolk Wildlife Trust are soon to be our new landlords. Brendan Joyce, Chief Executive of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust says:

“Norfolk Wildlife Trust wants to work positively with everyone who uses Hickling Broad including the sailing, angling and windsurfing interests to ensure we can maintain and protect its internationally important wildlife. This is a real opportunity to work together in a sustainable way where everyone who has an interest in Hickling sees the wildlife as its most important asset and works with us to protect it for the future.”

Martin Harwood says “The committee are very excited with the prospect of working with Brendan and his colleagues at the Trust, and look forward to building a great relationship for the benefit of all those who share the water”.
