HEACHAM: ‘Big Beach Clean-up’ date
Customers and employees of Marks & Spencer at Lynn are being asked to don their wellies and volunteer to help the local community by cleaning Heacham Beach next month.
It’s part of the M&S Big Beach Clean-up and will be held from 10.30am on Saturday, April 27.
With the support of the Marine Conservation Society and the Canal & River Trust, this year’s M&S Big Beach Clean-up will take place during that week across the UK and it is hoped around 8,000 people will get involved.
The target is to clear more than 15 tonnes of litter – more than the weight of a double decker bus.
Most of the litter collected will be common items such as fishing nets, ropes and bottles tops.
However last year M&S beach cleaners found an array of unusual items including a set of false teeth and half a sofa in Edinburgh, a cabinet near Liverpool, a ten-pin bowling ball in Deal, a carpet in Clacton and a pink thong on Shoreham beach.
Customers who register in advance at www.mcsuk.org/foreverfish will receive a money-off at M&S voucher at the beach clean.
Last year over 6,000 people took part in the event.
