Stevenson Presents Seaside Award At Inverboyndie

Stevenson Presents Seaside Award At Inverboyndie

Minister for Transport Infrastructure and Climate Change Stewart Stevenson MSP has today (Friday) presented the Keep Scotland Beautiful Seaside Award Flag to Andy Hickling, Aberdeenshire Council at Inverboyndie Beach, Banff. 

Mr. Stevenson was invited to present the award by the awarding body, Keep Scotland Beautiful, as part of a scheme designed to improve community beach environments.  The scheme awards beaches based on their cleanliness standards, water quality, management, information and facilities.

Speaking after presenting the award Mr. Stevenson said;

                "I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to present this award to Inverboyndie Beach.  It is a major achievement and one which is well deserved as the beach has maintained excellent standards over the years making it one of the boasts of our area.

                "This award comes as a result of the combined efforts of Aberdeenshire Council, the East Grampian Coastal Partnership and the hard work of local people to improve bathing water quality, facilities and information services, and to control litter and advance safety measures.  This is a clear sign that Banff & Buchan's communities take pride in the beauty of their local beaches.       

                "Banff & Buchan has been honoured with two Seaside Awards for Inverboyndie Beach and Cruden Bay.  This comes as a major boost to our area, ensuring high standards for the future and enhancing one of our area's foremost tourist attractions."
