Dr Philippa Oakley said: ‘At our small, family-owned business we work to be as environmentally-friendly as possible.

‘We have recently signed up to be a local refill station, offering free refills of your water bottles.

‘It’s important to us that we minimise food miles through supporting our local growers and producers, and work to keep our beautiful coastline clean by reducing the use of single-use plastics.

‘Our beach clean competition will also get you outdoors and moving, which is great for keeping our joints and muscles in good condition.

‘We’re proud to collaborate with The Final Straw group.’
