18th of September: Cleaned Beach

Yesterday (Saturday 17th September), we took part in the Marine Conservation Society's Great British Beach Clean on Blakeney Point for the third year running.

Despite the grey and windy weather, 17 kind volunteers - and one dog - showed up to help us fill 24 bags of beach litter and clear up 24 plastic containers.

Thanks to their efforts, the Point is looking much better. Thank you also to our neighbours, Norfolk Wildlife Trust at Cley Marshes for helping support the event and allowing us to pile the rubbish on their land temporarily, until North Norfolk District Council kindly dispose of it.

The beach litter from our previous two beach cleans (September 2015 and March 2016) is currently on display at the Beach Watch Exhibition at Wiveton Hall - well worth a visit!
