Beach Award for East Haven 2016

We are so thrilled to have achieved the first community led Beach Award on mainland Scotland. Beach Awards have traditionally been the domain of Local Authorities but Keep Scotland Beautiful are keen for communities to take responsibility for their own beaches. In East Haven we were concerned that the prescence of seaweed on the beach would undermine our chances of achieving an award. However, it is now widely accepted that seaweed provides an important habitat for small invertebraes and also helps to protect against erosion. This makes it possible for many natural rural beaches such as ours to be recognised by a national beach award. The assessment criteria is very rigourous though and takes into account the whole visitor experience from parking, toilets, signage and the general amenity. It has been a big mountain to climb but we are delighted to get to the top!
