Final call for Lincolnshire beach lovers to join coastal clean up

This story is over

Beach lovers in Lincolnshire are being encouraged to take part in a ‘Great British Beach Clean’ this week.

The Marine Conservation Society has organised the event between September 16 and 19 to ensure the county’s coastline stays clean and tidy.

Only a handful of volunteers have so far registered to clean up at the three events in Lincolnshire.

Three events have been organised for Lincolnshire in:

  • Anderby Creek
  • Seacroft
  • Crook Bank

Each event only takes a couple of hours and, alongside the clean, 100 metres of beach are surveyed.

Lauren Eyles, MCS Beachwatch Manager said: “We want to match last year’s figures and see at least 6,000 volunteers taking part – 145 of which were from Lincolnshire.”

“We’re currently running a campaign for clearer wet wipe labelling after our volunteers found on average, 50 wet wipes per kilometre of beach they cleaned.”
