Great Yarmouth is perhaps best known as a traditional British seaside resort; however, it is also one of the most important historic ports on the east coast of England, built between the North Sea and the Broads, with a unique built cultural heritage. As for the beach, it is sandy with wide dunes.
Joyland is Great Yarmouth’s Children’s Park. It was opened in 1949 and is still owned by the Cole family. Horace Cole designed the world famous “snails”. Even today, the Snails and Tyrolean Tubs are still in operation. If you want to visit you will find it at Marine Parade, Great Yarmouth

I spent many happy times in Great Yarmouth in the late 70’s and 80’s! I remember the Noah’s Ark. For me, this was the main reason for going to Yarmouth! It was sadly replaced by a space shuttle attraction in 1984.Alison – Founder – The Group Hug

Have you considered that a Financial Planner should be part of your divorce team?
Divorced, separated, widowed or going into another relationship; finances are important. However, boring the prospect may be, if you are starting a new chapter in your life, you need to get your finances in some kind of order. This is not only to protect yourself and your family for things which could happen in the future, but to give you the peace of mind that you have done everything you can to take control of your life once more.
There are a number of general financial planning principles which a good advisor will follow to assess what you need. Long gone are the days of “mis-selling” products which you really didn’t need. (Think of PPI).
If you have children, you probably want to put something in place to protect them in the future too. Whatever income you have, it’s all about using every penny wisely.
You could be in your 30’s or 60’s – it’s irrelevant; it’s always worth speaking to someone in the know, to ensure you are making good use of the funds available to you.
A financial planner will assess your needs and aspirations for the future.
