Last Sunday saw the ‘Beach Clean’ take place in Saltburn by the Sea in Cleveland and was well supported by over a hundred people. The event, part of a country wide clean up initiated by the environmental group Surfers Against Sewage (http://www.sas.org.uk/) brought surfers and members of the local community together to collect litter and rubbish from the beach, dispose of it and leave the beach cleaner.

The clean up operation managed to collected 65 bags of rubbish, a car tyre and an old fridge door!
Afterwards a barbecue was held and enjoyed by many, and everyone remained in good spirits despite the cold and rain.

These Beach Clean events take place at least once a year in many towns up and down the country and are well worth supporting to help keep our beaches clean from pollution and rubbish and to help protect the environment.
