People flocked to Beer Village on New Year’s Eve to see in the start of a new decade.

Hundreds of delighted merrymakers lined the Jubilee and counted down to midnight when the first flurry of fireworks welcomed in 2020. Shortly after Beer Village kicked off its New Year with a spectacular free Fireworks display over the beach.

Village Manager, Karin Frewin commented “Our first Fireworks display for many years had a fantastic community atmosphere and we were delighted see so many people coming from far and wide to celebrate their new year in Beer. The village was buzzing, and it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves.

We are working hard to create more events in Beer in 2020, and plan to get the whole community involved. Working alongside community groups and businesses our aim is to build strong positive networks which enable us to create new events and activities throughout the year.”

The fireworks were part of a series of new events that the Village Manager and Coastal Community Team have been working on to enliven the village. More information about events in Beer Village can be found on the events page.
