laminated City and Guilds certificate, a rowing boat oar and a plastic
inflatable seat were among the unusual finds found washed up during
a beach clean in Burnham-On-Sea on Saturday (November 4th).
sackfuls of rubbish were collected from the River Brue estuary and
southern end of Burnham beach by volunteers from the Friends of
Mark Hollidge told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "In typically blustery
conditions a team of 16 - including four newcomers - made short
work of the debris spread along the River Brue Estuary."
total of 20 waste bags were filled and amongst the more unusual
'finds' were a laminated City and Guilds certificate for Sport and
Recreation from 2002, a 10 foot length of pipe and a well preserved
oar from a rowing boat. We will try to find the other oar and the
boat next time!"
