Surfers Against Sewage Spring Clean

Surfers against sewage do a few beach cleans annually at many locations around the country. On Saturday 23rd March I participated in the one in Brighton, well Shoreham harbour to be exact.
It was a freezing cold, grey day and Shoreham harbour must be one of the worst beaches in the world, but when I am in Brighton it is my local break, so it makes sense to clean it! It was a far cry from the beautiful, sunny, empty beaches of Raglan that I usually clean, but a beach none the less so it is still important to make sure our rubbish does not end up in the sea.

I do not have the exact amount that I or anyone else in Brighton collected, however. Do know it was about 10 bags from Brighton alone. Beach cleans were held at 62 beaches around Britain, over 1500 people helped collect 4000kg of rubbish. . . .that is over 1000 bags of rubbish removed from our beaches and therefore away from the sea!
