The Friends of Berrow beach hope to re-start their monthly beach cleans in October if government Covid safety guidelines allow them.
A small number of the volunteers held a beach clean at Berrow last weekend to test how viable it would be.
Volunteer Nigel Hoy told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “Last weekend, a few of our organisers went on an unofficial clean of Berrow Beach.”
“This was primarily to assess the state of the beach, which hasn’t had a proper community clean since February this year.”
“It was also to check how viable it might be to hold a public clean again in October, if government guidelines allow.”
“That said, we were able to dig out a large length of fishing net that was mostly covered by sand and also retrieve a large wheel from a 4×4 vehicle or similar.”
“Finally, the opportunity was also taken to do a quick litter pick around the Berrow Church car park.”
