THE big Eastbourne Beach Clean is taking place later this month.

Plastic Free Eastbourne wants to encourage everyone to join the Covid-19 aware whole-town Autumn Beach Clean on Friday 25th, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th September.

When you take part would be up to you, since each volunteer will work individually, using Covid-19 distancing.

Please register your wish to volunteer by emailing plasticfreeeastbourne@gmail.com or phone 07971 909454.

Overall, this event is intended to make our beach clear of debris.

Equally, it is intended to provide a whole-town experience to raise our self-confidence and our sense of being able to work creatively and positively during this worrying era.

Eastbourne has a well-deserved reputation for rising to challenges and bringing about improvement to our town and to our surroundings. I hope you will feel able to take part too!
