SIXTY children and teachers from St Margaret's Junior School in Northam took part in a Big Tidy Up of the beach and pebble ridge at Westward Ho!
Organised by Torridge District Council's recreation officer James Jarroudi, the Year 6 students were joined by volunteer members of the public and Mrs Recycle, Cathy Karniewicz.
Together they picked up around 80 bags of rubbish which they collected into two piles - that which could be recycled and that which could not.
Westward Ho! is often referred to as the jewel in Torridge's crown.
