Life's a Beach for Newbiggin...

Delighted to see South Beach at Newbiggin-by-the-Sea receive 'Excellent' status from DEFRA and the Environment Agency.

The report, which was looking into the quality of the water at beaches across the UK, found that all but 2 of the North East's beaches were either 'Good' or 'Excellent' with Newbiggin North classified as 'Good'.

I will be working with local councillors and groups to see how we can get Newbiggin North to the same level of excellence as its Southern neighbour. Our coastal areas bring enjoyment to local residents and encourage tourism and visitors across Northumberland, let's make sure they're as lovely for future generations!
