A big beach clean up: Great Yarmouth

An unusual post, but an important one. My sunday afternoon was spent scouring Great Yarmouth beach for litter. This all sounds very random, but it was an organised event set up by Marks and Spencers in partnership with the Marine Conservation Society. There was around 30 volunteers, all armed with gloves, bags and litter pickers marching up and down the beach, hunting out discarded litter. Not only does it preserve the coastline, but its essential for marine conservation with sea life constantly being under threat from the rubbish left laying around. I think my worst find was probably a buried nappy, but there were much more harmful finds like broken glass and cans. The amount of rubbish collected was phenomenal, and I feel glad to have helped in a small way. (excuse the dodgy iPhone photos)
