BEACHES: if you are heading down to the beach this summer it’s interesting to know there is only one Blue Flag Beach in East Sussex and that is Camber Sands. The Scheme was set up in 1985 and originally started in France when beaches were awarded Blue Flags for compliance with sewage treatment and bathing water qualities. In 2005 the Herald was reporting beaches passing the standards in Eastbourne, Pevensey Bay and Normans Bay. By 2009 Eastbourne was no longer a Blue Flag Beach having been one since 2004. The beach at Pevensey Bay is still a massive draw for swimmers, windsurfers, kitesurfers and many more so what has happened ?
