Shoreham beach clean

Burn off those Christmas calories and join in a seasonal tradition on Shoreham Beach.

The annual post-Christmas beach clean takes place on Thursday, December 27, when volunteers of all ages are needed to help pick up the assorted detritus abandoned by litter louts or washed up on the tide.

Organised by the Friends of Shoreham Beach (FoSB), the event has become a seasonal tradition, offering a chance to enjoy some bracing sea air – and burn off the Christmas calories – while doing something worthwhile.

If you would like to take part, meet at the Ferry Road beach entrance at 10.30am.

After the litter-picking, volunteers will be treated to mince pies and a glass of mulled wine before heading home in time for lunch.

Joy Daintree from FoSB said: “From plastic bags and bottles to cigarette lighters and drinks cans, the discarded rubbish poses a very real threat to marine life.

“This popular event gets people out of the house after all that festive over-indulgence and also gives them the satisfaction of doing their bit for the community, not to mention the wildlife.”
