A Wonderful Suffolk Playground
This summer the Alde and Ore Estuary Trust has designed and distributed attention grabbing posters throughout Aldeburgh, depicting the floods that happened in Aldeburgh in 1953 and Snape in 2013, together with an artist’s impression of what the High Street could look like with further floods.
As part of the Save Our Suffolk Estuary fundraising campaign, the posters warn tourists and the estimated 300,000 visitors flocking to Aldeburgh, that flooding could take our ‘wonderful Suffolk playground’. Business owners throughout the town are displaying the posters to help raise awareness and funds for the £12 million flood defence scheme.
The Alde and Ore Estuary Trust Chair, Jane Maxim, said "This year we are asking visitors to donate to help reduced risks the Alde and Ore estuary faces from tidal surges and the devastating impact this flooding would have on the town, so they are able to continue to enjoy all that it offers."
