PRESS RELEASE - LOCAL MP WELCOMES FERRY BEACH AWARD
Dundee East MP Stewart Hosie has welcomed the news that Broughty Ferry Beach has once again been given a Scottish Beach Award by ‘Keep Scotland Beautiful’ which recognised “The high standards provided to users”.
The announcement comes just days after the beach was also given an “excellent” rating for its water quality.
Commenting on the award Dundee East MP Stewart Hosie said:
“Broughty Ferry beach is one of the most beautiful parts of Tayside and one of its best beaches, I’m glad that this award recognises not only the beach itself but the hard work from the Council staff who work tirelessly to maintain its beauty.”
“I hope this award encourages people who are considering a visit to Dundee to travel here and witness our city’s many spectacular sights.”
“The council do a terrific job of cleaning and maintaining the beach but keeping our city tidy is a responsibility for everyone. I was disappointed to see last Monday the state that the beach was left in after the surge in visitors during the lovely bank holiday. If we want to continue to attract global investment and high levels of tourism we all need to chip in to help ensure Dundee continues to be an attractive place to live and visit.”
