Weston has received a prestigious accolade for having a safe night-time economy – for the second year in a row.

The town’s Purple Flag status has been renewed for 2017, following a joint submission from North Somerset Council, Avon and Somerset Constabulary and the Weston Business Improvement District (BID) team. The award means Weston is nationally recognised for being a safe and vibrant place to enjoy an evening out.

North Somerset’s policing commander, Chief Inspector Tina Robinson, said: “I’m really pleased Weston has once again achieved Purple Flag accreditation. This is really positive news for the town.”
