George Municipality Celebrates Blue Flag Success and Beach Maintenance

George Municipality Celebrates Blue Flag Success and Beach Maintenance

Wilderness Main Beach, Herold’s Bay Beach, and Victoria Bay proudly retain their full Blue Flag status until 31 January 2024, while Leentjiesklip maintains its Pilot Blue Flag status throughout this festive season. The Blue Flag designation signifies compliance with international standards, ensuring high levels of water quality monitoring, public safety, lifeguard services, and well-maintained coastal amenities.

Despite the challenges posed by a storm surge in September last year, extensive repairs were completed, including the construction of a new walkway in Herold’s Bay, showcasing the municipality’s commitment to maintaining and enhancing its beach infrastructure.

Municipal beach cleaning teams demonstrated dedication by working from 06:00 until 21:00 on numerous nights to guarantee pristine beaches. Their efforts extended to keeping beach ablution facilities in excellent condition, despite heavy usage. Additionally, the Central Business District (CBD) cleansing teams ensured the town remained clean and inviting for all visitors.

The George Municipality takes pride in these achievements and remains committed to providing residents and visitors with clean, safe, and well-maintained coastal environments.
