Centre leads drive to clean Old Hunstanton beach
Officials at Hunstanton's Sea Life Sanctuary are holding a beach clean event this weekend and have appealed for volunteers to join them.
The effort will take place at Old Hunstanton this Sunday, June 17, at 11am and the centre hopes it will be their biggest one yet.
Duty manager Adam Makinson said: “During our last beach clean we collected 15 bags of waste weighing a hefty 52 kilos.
"However, we are determined to make this our biggest beach clean ever and we hope to exceed the amount of rubbish we collected last time.
“The threat from plastic pollution to our marine wildlife is only getting worse, with an estimated 46,000 pieces of plastic per square mile of the ocean.
"We are determined to make a difference and encourage people to use and dispose of plastics responsibly to save our oceans.”
Anyone interested in taking part can sign up via the Old Hunstanton Beach Clean Facebook page. Participants are encouraged to bring their own gloves, sturdy shoes and litter pickers if possible.
