Help clear up Chesil Beach

First published in News

VOLUNTEERS are needed to help clear up the county’s beaches this weekend.

Tomorrow, clean-up operations will take place at Chesil beach and Ringstead, near Weymouth.

Each clean will involve collecting debris which has been washed up during the adverse weather over the last few months, including cargo from the Svenborg Maersk container ship.

Gloves, bags and litter pickers will be provided at all locations but volunteers are asked to wear sturdy footwear and suitable clothing.

Organisers will be at the location for two hours and volunteers can join at any point.

There are two locations for the Chesil beach clean, both meeting at 11am.

These are Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Fine Foundation Chesil Beach Centre and the former police check point opposite the Sailing Academy.

Volunteers are asked to park in the Sailing Academy car park opposite.

The meeting point for the Ringstead Beach clean is the slipway at 2pm. The Lulworth Estate is also holding a beach clean tomorrow.

The meeting place is the Slipway, Lulworth Cove at 2pm.

The annual Great Dorset Beach clean will take place on Sunday, April 27.

The council’s coastal ranger team and volunteers will collect rubbish and debris on 25 beaches along the county’s coastline.
