VOLUNTEERS are being called upon to help make Southsea beach barefoot-friendly.

The national campaign is back and asking people to help clean Southsea beach tomorrow.

The Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project is in its sixth year and has enlisted the help of Surfers Against Sewage to get residents to keep their beaches barefoot-friendly.

Leading the campaign for the second year in a row is environmentalist and adventurer Ben Fogle.

He said: ‘A seemingly clean beach can actually have huge amounts of litter and rubbish just hidden beneath the surface.’

Volunteers will receive a T-shirt and cleaning kit at the start of the beach clean and will be thanked with Barefoot Wine. It starts at 2pm at Clarence Pier.
