Littlehampton’s Coastguards [East] Beach and Bognor Regis’ East Beach have retained Seaside Awards for another year.
Keep Britain Tidy’s Seaside Awards recognise beaches that are well-managed and maintained. They are quality marks and signify to visitors that they are amongst the best beaches in the country.
The announcement has been welcomed by Arun District Council which is responsible for the day-to-day running of the beaches.
Councillor Jacky Pendleton, Chairman of Arun District Council, joined other dignitaries and members of the Council’s Foreshores Team for ceremonies at both beaches to raise the flags.
The Chairman praised the hard work of everyone involved in maintaining the beaches to such a high standard.
She said: “This is a great start to the summer season. Our foreshores team works hard to ensure the beaches are pleasant for both residents and visitors and I am delighted that the Seaside Flag will be proudly flying above these two beaches again this year. Thanks should also go to the voluntary groups who help to keep the beaches tidy. Tourists pay attention to these awards and this sends out the message that Arun has some top quality beaches to be enjoyed.”
