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.
In fact he could be related to Sir Arthur Black. He owned a building in Sutton on Sea (Miramar) and it was used for orphans. My grandma was an orphan there. She has since died but I do have a photo or two.

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.
I have just made contact with Nigel Cory, who I see has made a contribution to this website. I knew Nigel and his brother, Clive, very well and they came down to our house in Chadwell heath for holidays in the summer months. I now live down in Devon, another superb place.
Fabulous days, thank you, Sutton, for such happy memories.

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!

Once we have sold our house in Spalding we are moving to Sutton having fallen in love with it. We have a business of doorstep deliveries of Pet and Wild bird Foods and would be interested to know if there is a demand for this in Sutton and surrounds. If you lovely people are interested I will come up each week to deliver before we move.

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.

andy from leicester Tuesday, November 03, 2009

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.

nicky from leicestershire (Saturday, September 02, 2006)

Hi
I am a friend of the current owners of the large house called the Gilroes, next to the social club on Trusthorpe road.
We are aware that the house used to be the doctors surgery, also in the early 1900's we think it was owned by a Mr Spurway ?
If anyone has any further info about the history of the property or any elderly relatives that may remember it please get in touch.
Thanks

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. travista55@hotmail.com.
Tom Travis Manchester (Sunday, July 23, 2006)

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.
Anyway though I love sutton-on-sea especially all the residents who are friendly and always ready for a chat. I hope it never changes :o)
Michelle from Ware, Hertfordshire (Tuesday, July 04, 2006)

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.
Anna Thompson Tamworth (Wednesday, June 07, 2006)

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.
Heather Williams Trusthorpe (Saturday, May 06, 2006)

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 always.
We will be back...again, soon.
Graeme from Loughborough (Wednesday, May 17, 2006)

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 bevinder@hotmail.co.uk 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
Jackie Bevis from nottingham (Thursday, April 06, 2006)

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 missing!!!!!

Richard from Hertfordshire (Tuesday, January 31, 2006)

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 please.
Malcolm Roberts from Bradford West Yorkshire (Friday, January 06, 2006)

I visit my Mum every year; it is always such fun for me and the kids.

I would love to give a winter home to a pair of donkeys but have no idea how to go about it! We live on a small holding near Newark in Nottinghamshire, have plenty of grazing, can provide excellent care and shelter - we just need some donkeys!
Any help you can give - such as a contact telephone number - would be GREATLY appreciated by me (and my two children!)
Many thanks in anticipation, Penny McQuilkin penny@imconsult.co.uk (Mon 22/08/2005)

just got back from annual trip to sutton on sea, great week weather wise , new holiday home - wonderful !! as usual great locals .
was disturbed to hear about the council ripping putting green and tennis courts up and putting in five- a - side football pitches instead !!!!! where are their brains they will spoil the town forever
and introduce a yob culture instead.

I left England in 1952 to migrate to Australia with my parents. It would be nice to hear from anyone as i have lost contact with all my relatives.
Thanks Les Nicholas. (nicko1@bigpond.net.au)
Les Nicholas from Tasmania Australia (Monday, July 18, 2005)

Visited 26/6/2005
Pleased to see the paddling pool has been finished and is great, could not keep the kids out of it! The upgrades work well.
If you want a family break, with no arcades or amusments to tempt money out of your pocket then this is the place. Make your own fun on the excellent ( and spotlessly clean) beach. Took a promenade chalet for the first time, well worth it to store your clothes, belongings, granparents etc in!
We will be back.
G Fisher from Loughborough (Monday, June 27, 2005)

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 to matter.
Denis From Leicester (Monday, June 13, 2005)

Just wanted to well you how much we love the site we live in Splading and have a chalet at sutton and when we miss it in the week we can surf the sutton site and know its there waiting for us
Best wishes

I am looking to move to Lincolnshire and have seen a couple of houses in Sutton on Sea that I like. However I am finding it very difficult to find out about local amenities for a family with young children. Can you help?

HARRIET from HERTS (Wednesday, April 27, 2005 )

Always came here every year when I was a child. Now come every year with my own daughter. Great place, great memories....
Martin (Tuesday, July 13, 2004)

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. ..........
G Fisher from Loughborough (Monday, July 5, 2004)
