  Work starts to refurbish iconic Blyth beach huts 

Local building and joinery contractors  have been appointed to carry out the work which will include a fresh coat of paint, general repairs, replacement or repair of shutters and locks and the renewal of decking at the front of the huts.  
Northumberland County Councillor, Jeff Watson cabinet member with responsibility for healthy lives said: 
“The twenty colourful beach huts are an iconic feature of the town and our county, and much loved by residents and visitors alike.   
They have stood pride of place on the beach front for almost 15 years but are in need of a re-fresh to keep them looking well maintained and vibrant.” 
The huts are owned by Northumberland County Council and managed by Active Northumberland and let out to local residents and visitors to the area. 
The cost of the work will be met by the county council and is expected to be finished by June 17th, taking two weeks to complete. 
Anyone wanting further information about booking the huts can find it by logging on to, calling the Active Northumberland Contact Centre Tel: 01670 620200 or email:
