FOLLOWING the success of the recent litter picks along the beach, Bournemouth council’s seafront team has organised another to take place for Sunday.

Bournemouth residents are being invited to come to Southbourne beach at 10.30am.

Volunteers wanting to take part should meet at the Bistro on the Beach at the bottom of the zig-zag pathway.

All necessary equipment will be provided, including hi visibility vests, bags, gloves and litter grabbers to help carry out the clean up, but anybody who has any those items is urged to bring them along. Litter picks have already taken place at Boscombe Pier and Fisherman’s Walk, with hundreds of people offering their help to clear away litter that has built up on the beach as a result of severe weather last month.

Chris Saunders, seafront manager, said: “The response from members of the public to the recent litter picks has been fantastic and we really appreciate everyone who has given up their time to help. We hope even more people are able to come along this Sunday and help return our award-winning beaches back to their best.”
