Update from the last Beach Clean:

 

Another successful Beach Clean took place last Sunday – sixteen of us, including new recruit Dan, picked up 81 kgs of rubbish – again, quite a haul.
 
We picked up the usual things- bottles, cans, numerous random bits of plastic, the metal parts of discarded disposable barbecues, plastic spoons, straws, baby wipes, cigarette ends, and some Domino’s Pizza and McDonald’s takeaway boxes.  It’s certainly worth noting that, on this occasion, I limited my own litter pick to the area immediately surrounding the Ice Cream Parlour, and the “triangle” of land between the long sloping path and the steps down to the Promenade.  I picked up almost half a bagful just from this small area alone.
 
We haven’t yet had our extra kit from the Council – hopefully these will be forthcoming for our next Beach Clean on the 3rd September; especially since we were on the limit of our litter pickers, and most of us were without hoops – items that make the task so much easier.
 
On a plus note, as always we had quite a few people commending our efforts as we went along, so we are not unnoticed by our local community!
 
See you on the 3rd September.........
 
 
 
Kind regards,
