Flying high with Clarkes Estates…
If you live in Bognor Regis or the surrounding areas, or simply visited Bognor town centre on 29th/30th August you’ll have seen the town heaving with people to watch or take part in the Aerial Birdman zip-wire experience. Strapped in a ‘superman’ harness, approx. 300 flyers literally zoomed through the shopping area on a zip wire travelling at speeds of up to 30mph, with plenty of smiles, laughter and I’m sure an adrenaline spike or two, if you saw the height of that tower.
We were pleased to capture our very own birdman and woman on camera. Carl Bryant who won our Aerial Birdman competition shared his prize with his partner Michelle and they took an early morning flight through the rooftops on Saturday morning. As winners of our competition, Carl won two Business class tickets which included a ProVideo of their flights to capture their experience and we were pleased to include the professional photographs for them as a souvenir.

Carl Bryant our winner said ‘I would like to thank Clarkes and their fantastic team for the opportunity to do Aerial Birdman, it was something I’d always wanted to do, so I was so excited when I won the competition. From the moment that I collected the tickets from the Bognor branch, everyone was so friendly and welcoming and I would like to extend special thanks to Nicola who looked after us on the day.’
It’s great to have new events in the town for the local community whilst also bringing more people from further afield into the town giving support to local shops and businesses. Events like these don’t just happen, so big thanks go to the town centre manager Toyubur Rahman for organising this great event. We hope there will be more great events in the future.
Some great photographs taken by Paul Inskip Photography on the day.
