Having read the RCBC report on this award, sadly all the groups that support Redcar beach were not recognised by the Cabinet member in his praise.
Therefore, I would like to say a BIG thank you to all the volunteers who put in so much effort to keep Redcar beach clean. The sung and unsung heroes who go out and clear up litter and other waste left on the beach and along the sea wall steps. Thank you for going out so regularly and often. Many do this quietly and independently.
Thank you also to the groups too;
Friends of Redcar; Beaches Toclean; The Big World Clean up; Walk N Talk; Tees Valley Wildlife Trust and all others including the individual VOLUNTARY litter pickers. Thank you so much. This is your award as much as anyone else’s.
Thank you also to Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, Northumbrian Water, The Environment Agency, Surfers Against Sewage, Marine Conservation-Society and Keep Britain Tidy.
The Seaside Award is run by Keep Britain Tidy and recognises and rewards beaches in England that achieve the highest standards of beach management and, in the case of bathing beaches, meet the required standards for water quality.
Finally, congratulations also to Saltburn who have once again achieve the Blue Flag award. It is the third year in a row that Saltburn beach has won the award. The Blue Flag is given for high-quality seawater, clean beach and beachside amenities.
