Cleaner beaches and seas means healthier and happier people.
That’s why LOVEmyBEACH has joined forces with Blackpool Council, Wyre Council, Fylde Council, Keep Britain Tidy and the Turning Tides partnership to launch the LOVEmyBEACH Active Coast programme.
The programme has been designed to inspire residents & leisure partners to see the potential of the beach as a clean and safe environment where a healthy lifestyle can be enjoyed.
The programme launched at St Annes, Blackpool Central & Fleetwood on the 11th June showcasing a selection of the activities taking place over the summer on the Fylde coast, from beach volleyball to walking football.
Director of Public Health in Blackpool, Dr Arif Rajpura added, “The beach shouldn’t just be seen as a place for visitors; it’s a clean and safe environment where a healthy lifestyle can be enjoyed year round.”
The programme has been created for all ages and abilities.
