Pelham Beach, Hastings and the Marina, St Leonards both bagged a Seaside award from the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy. Marina Beach also got the International Blue Flag Award making it one of just 52 beaches in the country receiving both. Keeping the beach clean and the bathing water of a high quality is a priority for the council. Kevin Boorman, Marketing and Major Project Manager at the Council said: “We are very grateful for the hard work of our colleagues and partners which has helped us win this prestigious award again.”
