Important to remember
AN EXHIBITION has taken place at the Meridale Centre, in Sutton-on-Sea, to mark the anniversary.
The organiser was John Monk, who was living in the town when the flood happened.
"It is so important to remember," he said. "There were breaches in the sea defences all along the coast.
"A great many people have moved to the area and they should know that Sutton-on-Sea was not always like this.

"We have postcards and pictures showing what the place was like before, during, and after the water came.
"I was actually living here when it happened. People were not the only things affected; animals drowned and transport links were destroyed."
Dennis Lowe, who lives at Sandilands, has been a flood warden for the past 17 years.
"It is my job to look after the Sutton-on-Sea area," he said.
"Flood wardens are alerted about six hours before anything might happen. If it comes to it, it is up to me to get people out of anywhere that might get hit by flood water. It is a very important job."
