Volunteers take on a clean up at the beach
MORE than 50 people took part in a clean up of a section of foreshore.
As part of the Marine Conservation Society’s Beachwatch Survey, the Portchester Civic Society recorded everything they collected from a 100-metre section of the shore at the bottom of Wicor Mill Lane.
Committee member Paul Woodman said: ‘We were pleased to note less plastic rubbish was found this year but there was a lot of broken glass collected.’
After completing the 100-metre stretch, many of the volunteers went on to clean more of the beach and collected 220 bags of rubbish weighing a total of over 100kg.
Paul added: ‘Last year our odd find of the day was a chandelier.’
