Two more community beach cleans are being held on Saturday in North Devon.

TWO beach cleans will be held in North Devon this weekend after the success of litter picks at Croyde and Westward Ho!

On Saturday, volunteers can either meet at Woolacombe to help out between 10.30am and midday, or Saunton between 10am and midday.

Volunteers helping at Woolacombe are asked to bring their own gloves, bin bags and tubs, and there will be hot drinks afterwards provided by Nick Thorn Surf School.

At Saunton there will be free parking for volunteers, and black bags and a few litter grippers are being supplies.

There will be free hot drinks and cookies at the café and volunteers are helped to wrap up warm.

Anyone attending the beach clean can also bring a sieve to help with the smaller ‘mermaids’ tears’ on the sand.
