LYME Regis recently took part in the Great Dorset Beach Clean with more than 20 volunteers picking litter from Monmouth Beach.

Those taking part collected four large rubbish sacks of rubbish, mainly plastic bottles, takeaway food cartons, drinks cans,  various size pieces of plastic and fishing lines.

A bucket full of glass beer bottles was also collected, as well as a broken children’s bucket with spade and a child’s crab net. The most unusual find of the day was a plastic manhole cover.

The beach clean was co-ordinated by local volunteer Krys Lavery on behalf of Litter Free Coast and Sea. The next will be on Sunday, June 10 meeting outside the lifeboat station at 10.30am, and another will be held on Saturday, July 21, also at 10.30am.
