Two of our local beaches, Harlech and Bennar Beach in Dyffryn Ardudwy, have won the â€˜Green Coast Awardâ€™ again this year. The award is aimed at rural beaches which provide a â€œnatural, unspoilt environmentâ€™ as well as the excellent water quality standard required to achieve the more recognizable â€˜Blue Flag Awardâ€™. The award is given out by the nice people at â€˜Keep Wales Tidyâ€™ with financial help from Europe. Itâ€™s great to see that our fantastic beaches are getting recognition at that sort of level. But I guess the downside might be that if more people visit our beaches itâ€™ll be harder no maintain the standard. So mumâ€™s the word!
