Littlehampton’s Coastguards East Beach and Bognor Regis’ East Beach have
retained their Seaside Awards for 2019. Keep Britain Tidy’s Seaside Awards are awarded to the best beaches in the country and the flag is a symbol of quality which ensures visitors are guaranteed to find a clean, safe, attractive and well-managed coastal area.
Arun District Council, which is the authority responsible for the day-to-day
running of the beaches, has welcomed the good news.
Chairman of Arun District Council, Alan Gammon, joined other dignitaries and
members of the Council’s Foreshores Team, along with local students, for
ceremonies at both beaches to raise the flags. Praising the dedication of everyone involved in maintaining the beaches, he said: “We’re delighted that these beaches have yet again been recognised with a Seaside Award.“Many thousands of visitors and residents enjoy our beaches and I’d like to thank all those who work so hard to keep them clean and tidy, including our council teams, volunteer groups and local residents.”
Keep Britain Tidy’s Seaside Award celebrates the quality and diversity of
England’s coastline. Formerly called the Quality Coast Award, the scheme is the nationwide standard for the best beaches across the UK.
