11 North West Beaches Win Awards!

Keep Britain Tidy has announced this year’s award winners for Blue Flag and the Seaside Awards.

Only one North West beach has Blue Flag – Blackpool South – but 10 have achieved a Seaside Award. These are:

Morecambe North and Morecambe South

St Annes Pier

Ferry Beach, Rossall Beach and Marine Beach, Fleetwood

Jubilee Beach, Cleveleys

Bispham Beach, Blackpool and Blackpool North and Blackpool Central Beaches

For more information, including what the awards mean for beach users, follow this link.

Author’s note: these awards have to be applied for so not having an award doesn’t mean the beach doesn’t meet the standards. Lancaster City Council, Wyre Council, Blackpool Council and Fylde Council all applied but with great improvements in water quality over recent years across the North West it would be wonderful if more North West beaches were entered.
