Sun fun at the beach

DONKEYS, buckets and spades and deckchairs are the order of the day at Denby Pottery.

For the visitor centre at the Derby Road site is currently home to an artificial beach! Fifty tonnes of sand have been shipped in for children and families to enjoy some summer fun.

As well as the golden sand, there is a beach shop selling ice cream, beach balls, buckets and spades, not to mention donkey rides.

Erica Coombes, shop manager at the visitor centre, said: “The kids absolutely loved the donkeys.”
