Clearing up the mess left by others, first task of the week

This morning I was at the National Trust in Formby to help with a litter pick on the beach. It was good to see so many volunteers from the NT and Lancashire Wildlife Trust including a contingent from Merseytravel. We were also joined by pupils from St Luke's  CofE School Formby.

Update, I have just received information from Andy on the beach clean:
The results from the event are as follows:

91 kg of waste was collected by 86 volunteers in 90 minutes including 66 children and teachers/helpers from our local St Luke's primary .

This total included 648 separate items of plastic and unfortunately, a sizable number of wet wipes and cotton bud stick were found.
