The MP for East Worthing and Shoreham, Tim Loughton, unveiled seven new information boards on Shoreham Beach nature reserve.

The boards were commissioned by Friends of Shoreham Beach after a £6,700 grant from the Awards for All lottery programme. After the unveiling, Mr Loughton tweeted: “Beautiful morning to unveil the new information boards provided by the excellent Friends of Shoreham Beach about local flora & fauna”.

Joy Daintree, chairman of Friends of Shoreham Beach, said she was ‘really pleased and proud with what we have achieved’.

Karen Wells from Shoreham Beach designed the information boards and carpenter Dave Backshall, also from Shoreham Beach, built the lecterns.

The information boards are positioned at each major entrance to the beach, which is celebrating its 10th year as a nature reserve.

It is a vegetated shingle beach, a rare habitat which is only found in New Zealand, Japan and the South East of England.

Around 90 plants can be found growing there and the environment supports many birds, molluscs, moths, butterflies and reptiles.
