Big Spring Clean - 2018 - May - Smelt Mill Bay to Carnalea, Bangor, Northern Ireland

Another great turnout for our group's 2nd Big Spring Clean with 33 people on the day, which considering it was a Bank Holiday weekend was brilliant. Although the weather started out dull, the sun eventually broke through and it ended up a beautiful sunny day. In total we lifted 31 bags of litter (estimated @ 255 lbs) and we covered @1050 yards of the North Down Coastal Path. It was hard work at times finding litter especially as the vegetation is growing fast at this time of year. Lots of matted material - probably wet wipes and other sanitary waste was found again on the beach at Smelt Mill Bay. One deep 'ravine' yielded lots of bottles and pieces of polystyrene, some of which there wasn't time to remove. Sadly lots of filled dog poo bags were found which had been thrown into the bushes as well as a tent. As always several passers-by stopped and thanked us for the work we were doing. Thanks to everyone who made it such a pleasurable few hours.
