On a Saturday morning of biting, winter wind, rain and then hail the Friends of Weston Shore were in action clearing up rubbish and litter from the beach with the help of new friends from the University of Southampton’s group for the Marine Conservation Society (UMCS).
A whole platoon from UMCS joined Mark and Adam from the Friends group on the shore and with the added help of litter pickers and hoops from Southampton City Council, we got to work. For a short period it looked like the ominous rain clouds might stay away and we managed to make a real difference to the area we worked on. Sadly a fierce hail storm brought the day to an early close.
It was really good to get stuck in so early in the year and we are looking forward to further clean ups on the shore during 2014. If you would like to get involved please get in touch.
