Residents help clean-up Pendine beach after storms

Residents have helped to clean up Pendine beach after the recent storms.
Around 30 local people, including adults and children, gave up Saturday morning to clean up the debris washed up by the recent stormy weather.
The volunteers filled around 30 bags and three wheelie bins in just a couple of hours.
The clean up was organised by Morfa Bay Adventure, which is based in the village, with the council’s Street Scene section providing litter-pickers, bags and gloves.
Gethin Jones from Morfa Bay Adventure said: “We carry out a lot of activities on the beach so it made sense that we co-ordinated it, but it was arranged at very short notice and a lot of people didn’t even know about it and more would have come along to help if they had known.
“But it was great to see the community come together, Pendine was hit pretty badly. The storm washed up a lot of stuff, we had lots of fishing net stuck to railings, lots of containers and plastic, mainly bulky stuff so we couldn’t bag it all and had to use wheelie bins.”
The council will arrange for as much as possible to be recycled.
