Donkeys are coming to Westward Ho! beach.
Five of them will be giving kiddies rides this summer at 5p a time.
The venture is the idea of Mr Peter Nast, who has given up his job as chef at the Elizabethan Club, Westward Ho! to start it. "I'm hoping they will be a nice little attaction" said Mr Nast this week. Northam Council have given their approval, no doubt recalling the days when organised pony rides were given on the beach.
Mr Nast has been offered a 'pitch' near the big slide for use when the tide is in.
