I was going about my normal routine – eating my breakfast and watching BBC breakfast – the usual – when I suddenly became engrossed in a report on how this dreadful weather has affected businesses throughout the UK.
I cannot remember where the report was filmed – it was a seaside town somewhere in the UK – but it talked about how this horrific weather had affected every single business in that town. Obviously, seaside towns in the UK typically don’t make a lot of money during the winter times but continuously look forward to the summer heat wave that for the previous few years has occurred.
It is a depressing thought to think that these small time businesses are struggling. Although, not to everyone’s taste – these small seaside towns epitomise everything that is British – and no matter what we cannot afford and wouldn’t want to them to disappear.
No matter from what background, I think all British people have found childhood memories of going to the beach at some point – walking a long the piers, going on the rides or eating the ‘Great British’ classic that is Fish and Chips – but this soon could be nothing but a distant memory.
There are obviously areas that will do better than others – Brighton is sure to have been hit from the recent poor weather – but undoubtedly wont feel it as much as other seaside towns like Margate or Clacton … These seaside cannot compare to the beaches of Italy, Turkey or Greece – but they are undoubtedly still part of the British culture and heritage.
I remember watching the 2012 British tourism advert on T.V not too long ago, where they were encouraging British people to holiday in the UK rather than go abroad – and I thought to myself – ‘I cannot think of anything worse than remaining in the UK for the summer period and during the Olympic times,’ However, since watching this harrowing report on BBC – I really cannot express how important it is that we stand behind our seaside towns and our small independent UK businesses.
