Walmer Beach Clean Sunday 4th March

After a freezing week our local community turned out big time, on today's Walmer Beach Clean. 

Over 80 people braced the elements and collected a record breaking 200kgs of rubbish in some 70 bags.

This clean was part of a national initiative #GreatBritishSpringClean 

Thank you to everyone who volunteered and organisers Vicky, Sonja, Wendy, John and Charles

Our next clean is on the 15th April starting at Sandown Castle end of the beach
