We are thrilled to be able to share with you that Widemouth has done it again! For the fifth year running Widemouth Bay has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag award and the Seaside Award – the two highest accolades in beach care and facilities! In addition to this both Summerleaze & Crookets Beaches in Bude have also received the Seaside Award. The iconic Blue Flag in an international quality mark for beaches, reassure visitors and locals alike that Bude’s beaches are clean, safe and recommended, boosting tourism, business and helping inspire return visits.  Blue Flags and Seaside Awards are only aware to coastal destinations that boast the highest quality of water, facilities, safety, keen clean programmes, environmental education and management. This is such a a huge achievement and is testament to all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes by the whole community. When visiting our beaches or any beaches for that matter,  should you find any litter – particularly plastic during your time spent there, just taking 2 x minutes to pick it up and put into the bins provided makes a HUGE difference.  There are also regular organised beach cleans, at our local beaches, so  if you’d like to get involved just ask us for details of the next one. PROUD & LOVING WHERE WE LIVE!!
