Rachel Woods MLA has said that Blue Flags and Seaside Awards allocated this week to beaches and marinas across Ards and North Down are a source of great pride for local people.
"My message however, is that we should only leave behind footprints when visiting our beaches and beauty spots. Too often a busy day on the beach means rubbish and mess left behind. Please leave the beach as you find it and be mindful of your environmental impact.
"We are the custodians of the beautiful natural resources that we have. The onus is on everyone to protect and enhance our beaches and beauty spots for the wildlife we share them with and our future generations."
