There’s another chance to get involved with cleaning up beautiful Weston Shore in Southampton on Sunday 3rd August 2013. It’s a great chance to take action about an environmental issue that’s easy to get grips with – litter. The clean up is run by the Friends of Weston Shore.
People taking part should bring along gloves and wear sensible shoes to protect themselves during the litter pick. The beach clean up is from 10am to 1pm on the day and please come along at any time during that period. The starting point is near the car park near the old pitch and putt course. Weston Shore is a Green Flag park so the clean up is to make it even better.
It doesn’t take long to give the place a good clean and the beach looks wonderful afterwards. For more information please contact the Friends of Weston Shore at firstname.lastname@example.org or have a look at their blog at www.westonshore.wordpress.com. You can also follow them on twitter @WestonShore.
