A VISITOR centre in historic Harwich welcomed a record breaking number of visitors this summer.
Harwich Society’s Ha’Penny Pier visitor centre provided information to thousands of visitors between May and the middle of October.
Volunteers who staffed the centre gave information and guidance to 9920 visitors.
This beat the previous record of 9046 set in 2011.
Harwich Society chairman, Colin Farnell, said: “The Harwich Society is extremely proud of, and very grateful to, our volunteers who staff the Ha’Penny Pier Visitor Centre seven days a week throughout the summer season."
