Sunday March 5th Beach Clean
On Sunday more than 30 hardy litter pickers, adults and children, chanced the weather to help Friends of Par Beach have a tidy of Par Beach and the Local Nature Reserve.
Despite a heavy duty hail and rain shower they managed to leave more than 30 bags for Biffa to collect.
The beach itself was not unduly littered, but hot-spots of the various car parks were pretty bad, which is disappointing as there are plenty of bins close-by.
The usual Friends of Par Beach gazebo was not in evidence as, due to the very strong gusts of wind it was deemed unsafe and the organisers managed to operate out of the backs of cars.
All in all, given the conditions, it was a successful event and thanks go to the 31 stalwarts who turned out. A special thanks to to a rather soggy Claire Louise Hunt, pictured below left who has long supported FoPB in her work as St Austell Tesco's Community Champion. Also pictured is Cllr Doug Scrafton (right) our local County and Parish Councillor another great supporter of Friends of Par Beach!
