Environment and community safety

If you are visiting Cleethorpes this bank holiday weekend, here are some top tips that will help you respect the resort’s unique environment.

Cleethorpes is a great place to be, so help us to keep it that way for everyone. The resort is a special place and we all have a part to play in looking after it.

The Resort Team Hub is opposite the Pier and open 9am to 6pm for beach safety advice, missing children, first aid and tourist information.

Daily tide times are displayed on the boards next to their office so people can easily check before they head out to the beach.

North East Lincolnshire Council’s street cleansing and resort teams work hard to maintain Cleethorpes beach and keep it as clean of possible for everyone to enjoy.

Did you know, the beach is raked daily to prevent litter being drawn back into the Humber?

The street cleansing team are covering the resort and destination parks from 6am to 5:30pm for the bank holiday weekend.

If you are visiting the resort and a bin is full, please find another or take your rubbish home with you.

Top tips

Here are a few tips to help you stay safe and care for Cleethorpes this bank holiday weekend:

Sandbanks – If in doubt, don’t go out! Always be back on the main beach five hours before high tide to avoid being cut off by the incoming tide. If you do get cut off call 999 and ask for the coastguard.

Mud – if you find sinking mud STOP, turn around and retrace your steps back to safety. If you do get stuck, don’t struggle as you will sink further. Remain calm, call 999 and ask for the coastguard.

Wildlife – always keep a safe distance away and do not disturb. Remember this is their habitat, their home and we are the visitors. If you have concerns for an animal’s health or safety, you can report it to the resort management team on 01472 323356.

Missing child, lost person or need first aid? Call 01472 323356 or visit The Resort Hub on central prom opposite the pier.

Safe swimming – always remain within the yellow market buoys to swim safely. Red marker buoys are for the use of motorised craft only.

Litter – leave only footprints, take only memories. Put litter in a bin or take it home. There are 328 litter bins in Cleethorpes as well as several recycling structures like Hammy the Haddock and the recycling globe on the prom to help you recycle on the move.

Dogs – no dogs on the main beach between Good Friday and 30 September. Please keep dogs under close control so they don’t disturb roosting birds and other wildlife.

Inflatables – Stay safe with inflatables on the water – be wary of offshore winds (that’s wind that comes from the land going out to sea) along with outgoing tides. You can easily get swept out to sea quickly, please be mindful. The resort team puts up orange flags to show the strength and direction of the wind.
