On Saturday 17th December we were happy to help Bexhill Environmental Group cleaning the beach at West Parade, opposite Richmond road.
The sun was shining to welcome all those attending and together we collected enough rubbish from the beach to roughly fill 15 bags! The litter ranged from bottle caps to a pair of glasses and all items found were bagged up by the group to be disposed of correctly.
Our team found it interesting to see how much fishing rope was found caught in the seaweed; it makes you wonder how much is still in the sea and is yet to reach our shores.
We would personally like to thank all those helping with the beach clean and to Bexhill Environmental Group, for organising and providing all equipment and who were more then happy to allow us to come along and join in.
The beach clean ups that are organised, once a month during the winter, are always very successful, with regular trips picking up over 10 bags of rubbish. However, it would be helpful if we all picked up our rubbish after ourselves and used the bins provided along the beach or, better still, take it home to be recycled. This way we can do our bit to keep our beaches and sea clean.
