The Mercury’s Cleaner Coastlines campaign is up for a second award – and readers can help us win it by voting.

Cleaner Coastlines, started by the Mercury’s chief reporter Sarah Robinson in October last year, has been shortlisted for a campaign of the year award at the Regional Press Awards.

It is also one of 26 local press campaigns shortlisted for the Making A Difference Award.

The campaigns are judged to have delivered meaningful changes within their communities.

A public vote will start on Monday and the award will be announced at the same awards ceremony in London as the campaign of the year prize on May 18.

Cleaner Coastlines aims to reduce the amount of single-use plastic used, and achieve plastic-free coastlines status for Weston.

The Mercury has worked alongside Weston Chamber of Commerce and North Somerset Council for the campaign.
