The prestigious International Blue Flag is once again flying over Aberdour’s beaches, after a ceremony to celebrate the award for 2012.
The ceremony was held today at Silver Sands Beach, Aberdour where the six flags for Fife’s beaches were handed over to the Depute Provost of Fife, Councillor Kay Morrison, with local lifeguards Robyn Dunn and Emily Ostocke were on hand to take the honours. Aberdour’s Silver Sands will fly the Blue Flag, while the Black Sands picked up a Seaside award.
Fife has again achieved six Blue Flag awards as well as six Seaside and two Resort Seaside awards in 2012.
The Blue Flags will be proudly flying over the sands until 31st August, and this means people using the beaches can be assured of the highest possible water quality and excellent facilities; including the presence of lifeguards, first aid, access for the disabled and regular cleaning.
Depute Provost, Councillor Kay Morrison said: “It gave me great pleasure to accept the award on behalf of Fife Council. For many centuries, our coastline has made important contributions to the quality of life in our local communities and is now a key component for the local tourist industry.
“To win so many awards requires a great deal of dedicated hard work by many people and these accolades represent a marvellous achievement by our local communities and council services.”
The award-winning Blue Flag beaches now flying their flag in Fife are: Aberdour Silver Sands, Burntisland, Elie Harbour, Elie Woodhaven (Ruby Bay), Kinghorn Pettycur Bay, Leven East.
