Special chairs that allow disabled people to use the beach will be back on Polzeath beach today - a year since they were destroyed by vandals.
Sand Chairs or beach access wheelchairs can be used in a range of outdoor environments. The adapted chairs cost thousands of pounds and the charity Disability Cornwall look for sponsors to help purchase them.
When they were destroyed at the Cornish beach last year it meant wheelchair users couldn't access the beach easily for the rest of the summer.
Two chairs will be back in action from today and they will be looked after by Wavehunters surf school.
These chairs were in constant demand from folk with a disability, amputees, older people and anyone else who needed them – it will be amazing to have a new pair on the beach – I am so excited!
