Spring beach clean at Heacham and Snettisham
Snettisham and Heacham beaches have been given a clean up by Rotarians and their families so that they are litter-free ready for summer and the coming holiday season.
Trinity Rotary Club members and helpers combed around four miles of the beaches on Sunday, removing rubbish washed up or left on the beaches or dunes by visitors.
Peter Harris, Trinity President, said: “We could not have picked a better day to be on the beach and we think we have left it as clean as it could possibly be for the summer.
"We filled some six sacks with rubbish with a lot of cans and plastic bottles and, of course, a lot of bits of plastic. We hope being clean now will make people think twice before discarding waste and use the bins provided or, if there are none there, to take their litter home with them.”
John Thorpe, organiser, thanked the members for their effort and added: “TheRotary Clubs in Lynn are organising a big litter pick in the town as part of theWorld Environmental Day on Saturday, June 5.. Further details will be announced nearer the time and local groups are welcome to help or, better still, do their own thing and select an area that needs improving.
"They can contact www.keepbritaintidy.org or the borough council, who are also loaning litter picking kits, for more information.
"The pandemic has had a definite plus, which we need, by inspiring many people to look after their neighbours and do work in their communities. This is what Rotary does and newly inspired people would be very welcome to join us at one of our Zoom meetings or events.
