Community Led Beach Award

East Haven Together is delighted to receive a beach award from Keep Scotland Beautiful for the third consecutive year. We are particularly proud of the fact that East Haven is the only place on mainland Scotland to achieve a community led award. Twice a year we attend the beach managers forum in Stirling where we join Local Authority managers and the senior scientist from SEPA to share good practice. We are assessed against 25 different criteria covering community, safety, access, environment, education, and information. In East Haven it really is a community effort and is about the whole amenity. As many of you are aware, we also collect beach litter every day and involve involve the wider community and school children in Marine Conservation surveys.  We are very grateful to CatchmentTayltd for the beautiful flag pole which is now installed on the heritage point enabling us to proudly fly our beach award  flag for the first time.
