Updated 11:50am Thursday 31st July 2014 in Business
A BUILDERS’ merchant has helped turned a town square into a British seaside resort.
Jewson, in Darlington, supplied 40 tonnes of sand for the Darlington by the Sea event.
Organised by business improvement district, Distinct Darlington, the summer celebrations also include creative workshops, live entertainment, games and rides.
John Beck, Jewson’s Darlington branch manager, said: “It’s so important to help and support local events and we’re delighted to be helping to transform Darlington into a seaside resort.
“The end result is fantastic and we hope everyone enjoys our beach.”
Darlington by the Sea runs until August 7.
