A beach clean will be held in Weston-super-Mare at the end of December, and we want as many people as possible to do their bit for our Cleaner Coastlines campaign.

The Mercury is working alongside Weston Chamber of Commerce and North Somerset Council to secure plastic-free coastline status for the town.

The beach clean will help Weston achieve one of the five objectives.

A chamber spokesman said: “If you’ve been watching Blue Planet II it goes without saying how important it is to reduce marine litter without delay.

“So if you’re looking for something to do between Christmas and the New Year please come and join us and help prevent even more plastic ending up in our oceans.”

To join in, meet at the Royal Sands end of the beach at 10am on December 30.

Bin bags will be provided by Rapide System Supplies, but people should take their own gardening gloves.
