I enjoyed putting together this list of top ten things to do in Cleethorpes in the summer of 1939.
I imagined what one of the characters in The Variety Girls would think was fun back then. It would mostly be simple pleasures and perhaps many of them would still apply today. A paddle in the sea is always a treat!
So here’s what the delightful Jessie Delaney came up with.
Top Ten Things to Do in Cleethorpes
Hello from Cleethorpes!
My boss at the Empire, Mr Jack Holland has asked me to write about what’s on offer in Cleethorpes this summer. This is my top ten!
1. See a show! The Empire is my first choice of course, but there’s so much on offer. There’s dancing at the Café Dansant and on the beach by the railway station you’ll find Jimmy Slater’s Follies – weather permitting.
Wish you were here!
