Around £250,000,000 was spent on restoring Sutton on Sea church to its original condition after an "act of God" ruined it last year.
People in the area said the lightning strike sounded like a bomb exploding. The church roof and building inside was left badly damaged by the fire. Nevertheless we found plenty to do on our holiday there.
Adequate bucket and spade shops were plentiful and raincoats were sold at the tourist information centre. We were staying in a trailer trash park on the cliff tops in a ridge tent.
In the town was a magazine shop and public toilet, cleaned twice a week. There was an adequate public park with dog mess scooping up facilities.
