Spooky-themed beach clean-up to take place

Have your say

A HALLOWEEN beach clean event will be held in Gosport this weekend.

Surfers Against Sewage is holding its annual Autumn Beach Clean on Saturday, October 28 – with volunteers coming along on the day in fancy dress.

The group will be tackling the litter lying around in Stokes Bay, meeting at 10.30am and going through until 12.30pm.

The event is co-sponsored by Greggs and Asda, which will be providing food and drink for the volunteers.

Cliff Culver from Surfers Against Sewage said: ‘Hopefully we will have lots of ghouls and witches cleaning our lovely beach – with the high winds recently it has brought a lot of rubbish ashore.

‘The beach cleaner with the best fancy dress costume will also win a goodie back with loads of cool stuff in it.’
