Further comments: 
PLEASE NOTE - Please do not use the 'Contact beach organiser' function on this page as the link is broken and does not work. If you have any queries, please contact Beachwatch: beachwatch@mcsuk.org. Previously cleaned sometimes by the council as it was managed under the Seaside Awards scheme (by The GRAB Trust then latterly the council). The Award has lapsed (2015) apparently due to reduced resources in time available for the beach management criteria required under the Award.
