Community, What's On
The Green Coast Award has been presented to Cranfield Beach for summer 2013. This is the sixth year this award, which requires beaches to have excellent bathing water quality and has been running in Northern Ireland, with Wales and the Republic of Ireland also participating. The award aims to improve and promote the local environment through water quality, safety, litter and waste and information and education on the beach. Patricia Magee, TIDY Northern Ireland’s National Coastal Officer said, “This award runs parallel with the coast care community programme and allows local people to manage their local environment and take pride in what they have on their doorsteps.” Mayor Councillor Ruane said, “I am delighted that Cranfield Beach has been recognised as an award winning beach through The Green Cost Awards as it is a symbol of environmental excellence and has been established to acknowledge, promote and protect the environment of rural beaches.” Even with some of the most beautiful coastlines in the world sometimes the potential of Northern Ireland’s beaches goes unfulfilled. This award is just in time for the annual Coca-Cola Clean Coast Week that will run from Saturday 20th July – Sunday 28th July. On Saturday 27th July a family fun day and raft race will take place on Cranfield beach West. For more information on Clean Coast Week please email
