Great British Beach Clean21st of August, 2019
Four of the team collected 143 kgs of unwanted items from the shoreline of North Walney NNR. Left to right in the picture are Alan Devlin, Steve Benn & Tony Fitzgerald. The Helping Hand Company donated 10 litter pickers to the beach cleaning campaign last week and this was the first time we used them and very efficient they were too. Sadly, we seem to be finding increasing numbers of remnants of helium balloons, tangled up in seaweed. In our opinion, balloon releases need to be discouraged as they are environmentally damaging and there are many other ways to celebrate events that have no/minimal impact on the environment.
