This summer local residents Tracy, Amber and Carla have taken it upon themselves to set up a new beach clean group in Formby.
Named the Formby and Freshfield Beach Litter Angels the group currently conduct 1 to 2 beach cleans a week, normally late in the evening in order to give people who work and those with young families the opportunity to get involved.
The group meet at Freshfield Squirrels car park, Victoria Road and spend one hour cleaning the beach of plastic pollution; some washed in and some sadly left by visitors.
Unfortunately equipment is limited at this early stage of the groups formation; LOVEmyBEACH have been able to support with some gloves and bin bags in the short term and will be working with the group and the National Trust to see what else can be arranged.
Please join them if you can, bringing along your own gloves and litter picker if you have one.
