Family use same beach hut for 50 years

The Bournmouth Echo reports

FOR almost half a century the Cotterills have been packing their buckets and spades and heading for Bournemouth beach.

Every summer the family book the same beach hut and stay in the same bed and breakfast in Alum Chine, keeping up an August bank holiday tradition started by grandparents Maureen, 73, and Charlie, 82.

Come rain or shine, the family of eight travel to the Dorset coast from Stoke on Trent for their annual summer getaway.
