The swan taking shape on Swansea beach - Mumbles in distance

Swansea’s glorious beaches are cleaner and safer than ever before thanks to EU water quality standards.

Volunteers from Swansea for Europe, with the support of surfers, created a giant sand artwork on Swansea beach to mark the EU’s contribution to cleaner beaches in the area.

The event launched a campaign celebrating what Europe has done for Swansea.

Paul Willner, chair of Swansea for Europe, said:

“The beaches of Swansea have never been cleaner and safer – and we have Europe to thank for it. It was European law that made Westminster clean up its act.

Beaches that were polluted with raw sewage twenty years ago now have blue flags.

It’s a perfect example of how being in the EU brings real benefits to Swansea and its people.”
