A group campaigning to better protect the environment will meet this week for a litter pick.

Turn The Tide Portishead volunteers will meet on Friday morning to tidy up rubbish left strewn over the coastline.

The group is keen to reduce the amount of single-use plastic which is used – as does the Times’ Cleaner Coastlines campaign.

Wayne Dixon and his dog Koda will be joining the volunteers this week.

He has made headlines across the country by embarking on a 7,000-mile litter pick around the UK.

He visited Portishead towards the end of last year and helped to inspire people to continue his efforts.

Turn The Tide Portishead will meet at the Café Lido, off Esplanade Road, at 10am tomorrow (Friday).

Anyone interested in helping out is asked to bring a bag to collect dumped rubbish and to wear gloves, warm clothing and sturdy footwear.
