The Weston branch of the National Citizens Service has been taking part in a number of activities throughout the summer holidays.

The service is for teenagers aged 15-17 and gives them the chance to embark on challenges and build new skills.

Weston’s youngsters chose to spend time on the seafront collecting rubbish and carrying out beach cleans.

They then took to the Grand Pier to give out advice on recycling.
