More than 60 sackfuls of rubbish were collected during the latest beach clean in Burnham-On-Sea on Saturday (February 16th).

Dozens of volunteers took part in the latest clean-up at the southern end of the town’s beach around the mouth of the River Brue, as pictured here.

Mark Hollidge from the Friends of Burnham Beach told “55 willing workers collected a vast amount of rubbish – we also had three dogs sniffing out some litter!”

“It was also great to welcome a group of children and teachers from King Alfred School Academy.”

“Another excellent morning was spent on the banks of the Brue and the southern end of Burnham beach – among the rubbish collected was a perfectly usable and good quality wooden garden chair which was won by a lucky person who could answer a quiz question.”

The volunteers finished off with a well-deserved hot drink and biscuits at Burnham sailing club.

The next Burnham-On-Sea beach clean will be held on Saturday, March 16th.
