You could try the shellfish suppliers who may take on seasonal staff depending on need. You'd be best showing up (very early) in your togs to show willing. At worst you might get a days fry out of it. Otherwise, there's not a lot of casual labour work at the moment.

Have you thought of picking winkles? find out in the local press what the demand and rate per cwt you wouldn't be the first to live off the seashore for a season.

Good luck.
