SURFERS joined forces with environmentally-minded people to clean up a beach.

The team took part in the annual Surfers Against Sewage beach clean at Eastney on Saturday.

Organiser Lisa Harries said: ‘It went well with about 30 volunteers turning up aged from two to 75, which was great.

‘It is great that so many people care about the local environment and marine life. We collected 15 large bin bags full of rubbish plus some huge wooden debris that we believe had floated down from South Parade Pier.’

The person who found the most bizarre item - a gigantic light bulb - won a meal donated by record store and cafe Pie & Vinyl in Castle Road.
