Two beach cleans will be held in Weston-super-Mare on one weekend this month.

The first, organised for the Mercury’s Cleaner Coastlines campaign and Surfers Against Sewage’s beach spring clean weekend, will take place on April 14 in Uphill.

People should meet in the car park by the dunes at 10am, and the clean-up will finish at noon.

Some equipment will be provided, but people should take their own along where possible.

The second, organised by the Marine Conservation Society will take place in Sand Bay on April 15. It will run from 9-11am, and people should meet in the car park.

Hundreds of people have already taken part in beach cleans in Weston since the Cleaner Coastlines campaign was launched alongside Weston Chamber of Commerce and North Somerset Council.

Organisers say they would love to see similar turn-outs again this spring.
