Better Nailsea hosting litter pick at Clevedon Road car park, Nailsea.


Volunteers have been 
busy out and about in Nailsea collecting litter this week.

Members of the Better Nailsea group and Rotary Club of Nailsea & Backwell gathered at the car park in Clevedon Road to collect dozens of black bags full of litter found in the area.

There were also some slightly unusual finds including a car wheel and exhaust pipe.

Litter picks have been taking place across the district in recent months.

Last month Portishead’s beach clean attracted a great turnout while charity Clevedon Pride holds regular litter picking events.

The Times is also running its Cleaner Coastlines campaign to try to reduce the amount of single-use plastic used in North Somerset with a view to achieving Plastic-Free Coastline Status.

For more information about the campaign, search for Cleaner Coastlines: Weston and North Somerset plastic-free campaign on Facebook.
