Schoolchildren help to clean up Lyme’s beaches

Children, parents and teachers from St Michael's Primary School in Lyme Regis, who helped at a recent beach clean

MORE than 60 people from the St Michael’s Primary School community turned up to clean the beaches in Lyme Regis.

The school’s Eco Club, run by teaching assistant Ben Taylor and deputy headteacher James Rich, organised the beach clean in their mission to make everyone at the school more environmentally aware.

The fantastic turnout was the largest to date. In total, 10 full bags of rubbish were collected, consisting mostly of plastic.

Pupil Jasmine said: “We wanted to encourage all our friends from school to come along and make our beaches cleaner to play on.”

Phoebe added: “We all come to the beach a lot so we want to keep them clean and make a difference to the environment.”

The club would like to organise more beach cleans and are on the lookout for any businesses that would like to support the club. Anyone interested should contact the school on 01297 442623.
