Great British Beach Clean

We all met on Mudeford Quay at around 10.45am on 13th September. The team were: Marta from Bournemouth, Andre from Boscombe, Matt from Eastleigh, Craig from Basingstoke Market Place, Prezzy from Christchurch, Vicki from Winchester, Lauren & her son from Ower, Dylan from Basingstoke Brighton Hill, Marie from Swaythling, Dave & Jess from Basingstoke Leisure Park, Simon from Picket Post, Sarah our Trust Manager and Deborah a volunteer who contacted us through the MCS web site.
We are very grateful to Dorset Waste Partnership for providing us with litter pickers and bin bags as well as collecting our rubbish at the end.
We started our pick on the Quay and walked down towards Steamer Point. The team spread up so that we picked as much litter as we could. We went behind the beach huts, up on the hill to the road, the boardwalk as well as right across the beach in our quest for litter. We found quite a lot of bottles, cans and BBQ rubbish remnants of summer beach parties no doubt. Also we found some strange items: a large piece of rope that when we pulled it out of the sand had bait still attached to it which did NOT smell too sweet, a buried fishing rod, a car tyre, a bucket, several parts of crabs including  whole one and a dead baby shark. We ran a competition for the biggest item found, Most rubbish collected & strangest item.
At the end we had collected 15 bags of rubbish.
