In 2004 a local initiative “Walking the Way to Health” was launched to try and improve people’s health by encouraging them to regularly walk a specific distance along the promenade. In 2011 the route of this 1.18 km walk was marked out by a series of 10 plaques along the promenade between, in the east, Channel View East and, in the west, the public toilets opposite Richmond Road. The small concrete plinths with grey plaques are placed at ground level opposite every third beach groyne between numbers 48 and 72. Each plaque depicts a stylised man in white with a grey-coloured apple-shaped heart; distances are also shown, going either east or west, to complete the walk.
