A BIG THANK-YOU … to all 52 volunteers who cleaned up the 5km length of our beach today from Rye Harbour village to Winchelsea Beach. We had glorious sunny and calm weather, so it was a great day to be by the seaside and for a while it’s probably the cleanest beach in the world. Collecting about 100 bags of plastic litter washed in from the sea, there were the usual blue rubber gloves, rope, netting and water bottles. But there were also numerous dog poo bags left by lazy dog walkers. So, we now have about 12 cubic metres of waste that we will dispose of responsibly.
