The beach came to town as part of the Worksop-by-the-Sea event, held by the town’s Business Forum.

There were a host of activities to enjoy such as face-painting, food and craft stalls and live music.

Residents could also relax on giant deckchairs while listening to the sounds of the ocean and enjoying an refreshing ice-cream.
