2nd May: Successful Beach Clean

The beach clean that took place this afternoon was very successful, with five enthusiastic litter pickers collecting 10 bags of rubbish and many more tyres, sheets of plastic, lobster creels and more.

There were some very interesting finds, including a garlic clove, a children's shovel, a pair of ladies tights, and a praying mantis toy!

Thanks to all the help from our keen volunteers. It is so important to carry out regular beach cleans and litter picks in order to prevent wildlife from getting caught up in items like netting, or trying to eat small pieces of plastic and subsequently starving.

We will be running more litter picks throughout the summer and are always looking for more assisstance with these, so if you would like to get involved in this vital part of conservation please keep checking this blog for details or call 01289 381470.

Help us keep our coastline clear of litter
