PLANS are underway for Aberystwyth to become the UK’s first plastic-free town.

As Surfers Against Sewage launches its Plastic Free Coastline campaign last week, local surfer and Borth SAS representative Alan Cookson told the Cambrian News about the initiative, and his hopes that Aberystwyth would become the first town in the UK to sign up.

The campaign will see volunteers in Aberystwyth call on businesses to swap three items of disposable plastic for an environmentally friendly alternative, with businesses given insignia and publicised on social media as a plastic-free business.

Blue Flags still fly over Ceredigion beaches

The Ceredigion Herald reports: BLUE FLAGS will fly over six of Ceredigion’s most popular beaches again this year.

Borth, Aberystwyth North, New Quay Harbour, Llangrannog, Tresaith and Aberporth beaches have each been awarded the coveted International Blue Flag for 2017. In addition, Ceredigion has been awarded 4 Green Coast awards and 13 Seaside Awards.

Blue Flag and Green Coast award beaches must meet the highest water quality standard and are judged for the provision of facilities for beach user and for demonstrating good management and safety provision. The Seaside Award recognises beaches that have good public facilities, water quality, safety provision and management.

Ann Eleri Jones, Ceredigion County Council’s Tourism and Marketing Manager has welcomed this year’s award announcement.

She said: “Once again, Ceredigion’s beaches have been recognised to be amongst the best, not only in Wales, but in the world. The awards are a mark of quality and it’s great to see Blue Flags and Seaside Awards flags flying at Ceredigion’s most popular bathing beaches again this year. Although Ceredigion’s coastline and beaches attract visitors throughout the year, this is an excellent start to the traditional holiday season and we look forward to a busy summer.”

The following beaches have been awarded 2017 coastal awards:

Borth, Aberystwyth North, New Quay Harbour, Llangrannog, Tresaith, Aberporth
