A giant steel fish on Westward Ho! promenade will be officially unveiled and named during a day of activities to highlight plastic pollution on Saturday, May 18.

The fish, which has found its new home at The Carousel Centre on the promenade, will be unveiled by Torridge MP Geoffrey Cox at 11.30am.

The idea is that its frame will be filled with plastic bottles to raise awareness of plastic pollution in our seas.

And the village will be awash with plenty of other activities throughout the day.

At 9.30am a beach clean will be held, meeting at the top of the slipway. All equipment will be provided on the day.

ReFuse and ReUse are also hosting the Plastic Free Spring Fayre at The Pier House. Mr Cox will be opening the event at noon and there will be more than 20 exhibitors, ranging from crafts to community groups.

All of the events on the day wll be filmed as well, to create a second Westward Ho! Rises Against Plastic film.
