Friends of Redcar BEACH ACTION GROUP Nov 2nd



A beautiful morning in November saw FRED meet with 35 Friends of Redcar taking great care of the beach we all love. 

This morning we collected 60+ bags with support from residents, visitors, SURFERS AGAINST SEWAGE and local business SEABREEZE fish and chip shop from Coatham.




These great volunteers who range from all ages and from all walks of life, all have one thing in common: To rid Redcar of the scurge of litter and rubbish that finds it's way to the beach so that more families can enjoy the fabulous beach we have.




FRED has just had a great boost of £3000 from the Philanthropic Society and £1,150 from Community First. We would like to say a big thank you to them both. This funding will go towards our bid to host a sandcastle competition in May next year. 

So in that case we'll need to keep our beach clean and safe for the kids to enjoy next year and so more community events can take place.

 


This is just some of the 50 metres of rope, string and fishing lines we found on the beach this morning. Other notable objects where cotton buds, glass and plastic bags.





































Cheers everyone. Once again you were fantastic.
