More than 40 people turned out to tidy Clevedon’s seafront at the weekend.

The annual beach clean organised by Surfers Against Sewage saw around 35kg of waste removed from the seafront.

OJ Joseph, a regional representative for the organisation, told the Times: “It really made a difference, and shows the community and political leaders that we care and we are willing to take action.”

Surfers Against Sewage is also appealing for a community leader to come forward to help educate the community on how to reduce their use of plastics.

To volunteer, email Weston leader Debbie Apted on secretary@westonchamber.org.uk

The Times will be launching its own campaign to cut the amount of plastic on the district’s beaches.
