The news that Hunstanton’s main beach has received a coveted Blue Flag Award has been greeted with much delight in the resort.
Blue Flag and Seaside Awards are given by Keep Britain Tidy and are awarded to beaches that meet the very highest standards of cleanliness and provide excellent information and facilities.
Cllr Nick Daubney, Leader of the Borough Council said: “This is excellent news for the resort. People who visit regularly know that we have a strong commitment to providing excellent services and clean beaches and we have a great track record on achieving the Seaside Award. Achieving a Blue Flag is the icing on the cake, as it means that our bathing water quality also meets the standards. Flying the Blue Flag can be a real draw for people considering where to spend their holiday or bring the family for the day, so I really hope that this will help to boost trade in the resort this year.”
