Just read some of the comments on the history of Sutton on Sea. A lady wrote that she couldn't believe that H Wallis was not the same H Wallis the Lace Factory owner from Nottingham.
A few of us have founded The Sutton on Sea Appreciation Society- dedicated to those who appreciate Sutton on Sea! E-mail for details.
I had many a happy holiday at Sutton on Sea with my mum, dad and brother. We stayed in Queens Road with Mr & Mrs Castledine. " Uncle Chaz " used to get us up early to go Mushroom picking which were consumed later in the day. My grandad, Willim Homes, was born in Sutton on Sea.
Spent most of my childhood summer hols in Sutton at Nan and Grandad McEwan's. Now in 50's and although live only 20 mins away had not had a holiday there since the early 70's. Due to lack of money, we were offered the loan of a chalet for the week. For the 1st time, am pleased we were hard up as we have had a wonderful week.memory lane at Corner Cafe ( Mitchell's) and fish and chips at Waldof, friendly folk, ice cream. Pity about top cafe and vandalism of chalets. council take note!
Sutton on Sea is my favourite place to go on me summer hols! Brilliant atmosphere, everyones so friendly and there's plenty to do for all the family! Can't wait to visit again soon!
hi was wondering if anyone can remember eric jordan of the white bungalow in sutton,he was my grandfather and done alot for the council,he also has a name plaque on one of the benches on the promonade,me and my wife make a point of coming to sutton every year,and we stay in the baccus hotel.which is a friendly place to stay.
I am looking for details/memories/photo`s of the Savoy Cinema at sutton on sea,
that I hope to published in the near future.
And would be most grateful for any details I can come across.
Love the walk from Mabo down to Sutton,get a good meal at the working mens club, sutton kept clean and friendly, good day out at carnival, all you want cannot wait.
Just a query. I bought a water colour twenty years ago from a sale at Scunthorpe Central library. The library used to 'loan' out the pictures, the idea didnt last long & the pictures were sold. I am sure this picture was of a place in Sutton on Sea. It was up in my loft & fell & broke the frame. I have looked on the back & it says Bagmoor Farm (Will Illingworth 1984). I was hoping to locate Bagmoor Farm & send it to them, although now I cant find a record on the back of the picture that it is Sutton on Sea. I am not sure where I got the name from, or if thats what it said on the library record card! I just wondered if any one at your agency had local knowledge? Is it a place any of you know? It just intrigues me. Its just a pleasant picture that I enjoyed years ago, but I have no place for it in this house. I know its a long shot. We have got a Bagmore farm around here, but it doesnt look the same!
Thank you any way for your time.

Hi! Lovely to see so many people obviously (and quite naturally) bewitched with 'Sutton in Marisco'. I was born and grew up there (1945 to 1965), at 32 High Street which is now Watson's Hardware Store. For a child it was most exciting to go through the 1953 flood, but not so much fun for the grown ups! I'd love to hear from anyone who knew me or my brother Clive.
We love sutton on sea its so layed back we go as much as possible we end up camping over night does anyone have or know of any accomodation we can rent fo the night or sometime 2 nights on a budget so it needs to be reasonable we are not noisey or mad drinkers just want somewhere to stay; fed up of camping; please mail me email@example.com thanks

Hi, Just to congratulate you and the Town on the fantastic new

Sutton on Sea is one of my favourite places in England. I liked
it so much I had a tantrum when my mum and dad told me we had to
My grandparent moved to sutton in 1971 they bought a brand new
bunaglow at camelot court which i now own, my parents have also
since moved to sutton to retire and i have spent all my childhood
there and i visit as often as poss as i still live in bham,
Fresh air and hearing the birds sing! That's why my husband and
I are currently buying a property on Church Lane to live in forever!
Looking for anyone who remembers a miss fitt who resided at 32,trustthorpe
road,sutton on sea in 1940.any info will be appreciated.
i am trrying to contact my brother firstname.lastname@example.org

breakwater bugalows.im now 35 and my family,my parents my brother
and his family went last sunday for the day and we all had such
a lovely time.im very impressed with the new paddling pool on the

Does anybody from Sutton remember the Kingsley family who ran a
guest house at 38 Trusthorpe Road. I spent the summer with them
35 years ago and had a great time. email@example.com.
I love seeing my grandparents who moved to sutton-on-sea 8 years
ago as regularly as I possibly can. The problem I had though when
I got here was when me and my nanna want to go and see a show at
skegness because the last bus leaves Skegness at 18:10? And it would
be expensive to fork out for a taxi. I think there should be something
done about it.
I love sutton, altho im sad they altered the beach and the chalet
park has been sold off, spent many family holidays here, i shall
be returning shortly as an adult to see how much it has changed.
I moved to Trusthorpe from south London and I think living around
here has improved my life, I am only 20 and suffered with stress
due to london being a fast moving place to live. I miss all my old
friends and I still keep in touch with them. But it is worth it
for a better quality of life.
Managed to get a night away from my business, stayed at the Kingsley
Park Hotel, excellent value and welcoming host, nice one John. Had
a great meal at the Bacchus hotel, best bottle of house red we have
had in a long time, very good food as well. Beach immaculate as
I just wanted to say how much i love sutton on sea, i grew up there
with my dad and brothers and sisters, sadly my dad passed away so
i had to leave good old sutton at 14, im now 21 and visit all the
time with my soon to be husband, i would love to hear from anyone
who remembers me (jackie bevis)email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
I use to live in a bungalow with my family off high gate lane on
a little dirt track 2 min walk from the beach, i also would like
to say that the high gate holiday park has really ruined the look
of how it use to be,i no before it was just a field but to me it
has ruined it as i remember the good old days playing hide and seek
in the grass with all my brothers and sisters!If i had the money
i would buy my dads bungalow back and live there for the rest of
my life,maybe one day eh? big shout out to all my sutton m8s
To come to Sutton in April, with my daughter, son, both adults,
and 3year old grand-daughter, and two dogs, has become a family
tradition over the last few years. The fresh air beautiful beaches,
clean town, friendly people, I could go on, make it a perfect start
to the summer months. Folk who go abroad don'tknow what they are

We visited Sutton on Sea in April 2005 for the 1st time. We have
fallen in love with the place. We are looking for a detached bungalow.
It ticks all the boxes for a couple of young at heart golf playing
60yr olds. We are looking for the catch. Is the catch that houses
take a while to sell??? If so then thats our kids problem!!! Advice
I visit my Mum every year; it is always such fun for me and the

I would like to hear from anybody who new my Grandfather Mr Frank
Stacey or any of his relatives. He owned the boot shop in sutton
during the war years. My mothers name was Vera Nicholas (nee Stacey).
Our family have been regular visitors to Sutton over the past 50
years, starting with an annual holiday for the children. My wife
and I are coming for four days from July 4 to 8, and we wondered
if we could a council chalet in advance. I could pay by cheque forwarded
to you or by Switch, if possible. By the way, most of our holidays
were spent at Breakwater Bungalows, and the weather didn't seem

I am looking to move to Lincolnshire and have seen a couple of

difficult to find out about local amenities for a family with young
children. Can you help?

congratulations , Irene willows for doing something she should have
done years ago
comments: I love Sutton on Sea, i come here every year to visit
my nan. the beach is lovely.
Always came here every year when I was a child. Now come every
year with my own daughter. Great place, great memories....
Spent many happy years there as a child, took my parents and my
children there on Sunday 4th July, the place has not changed at
all, except.....the reason for going mainly was the happy memories
of the paddling pool and to let my kids enjoy it, but it was closed
for rework, talking to locals we discover that the EEC has had a
hand in it and almost forced the pool to be filled in!, As it stands
it seems contactors are not doing there jobs and finishing the rework
promptly. Come on Sutton councillors, this is by way one of your
most valuable assets and its demise and disrepair at present will
mean we will not be back again unless it is re-opened. The day we
visited even loacl business owners were closed as the trade from
the pool was not to be had. Other than that Sutton is a great place
with no arcades or funfair to overshadow it. ..........
i spent all my hoildays at sutton on sea when i was small FUN ,
