Payback offenders clean up Burnham-On-Sea seafront
who have been sentenced by the courts to do unpaid community work
have been collecting rubbish along Burnham's seafront and along
the River Brue this week.
District Council asked the probation service if they could bring
a team of offenders to help out after recent storms washed up
a large amount of rubbish.
Searle, supervisor for the Community Payback team of the Probation
Service, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We have spent all day
collecting about 40 dustbin bags full of plastic bottle and bags
from this beautiful footpath."
excellent work for the guys to clear up the rubbish that has been
washed up by the sea."
response from the public was fantastic and they engaged with the
workers telling them what excellent work they are doing and how
much better the area looks now.
old car wheels and gas bottles that had been dumped there were
also taken away.
any members of the public see us working in the area then please
come and talk to us and give feedback or ideas of future work
you would like done.
