On a hot, sunny Sunday, The Lions Club of Leigh-on-Sea undertook a litter pick of Chalkwell and Leigh beaches to celebrate Earth Day 2018.
Tim Watts, the Club’s Community Chairman, said,
“Pleasingly, we collected relatively few plastic bottles and cups, so perhaps the message there is getting through to everyone, but unfortunately we still found many bags of dog mess lying around, despite there being bins provided for disposal. Amongst some of the other treasures recovered was a 4 foot ripped paddling pool left on Leigh beach.”
Southend Lions also had a busy morning clearing the beaches near the pier.
