THE people of Ilfracombe are being invited to become "Action Erath Heroes" tomorrow (Tuesday) and help clean up Hele Beach.

Community Resources is joining the clean up as part of a national campaign called CSV Action Earth supported by Morrison's supermarkets

Each year more than 900 voluntary organisations, businesses and community groups undertake projects that are of immediate and lasting benefit to the environment.

Community Resources is a not-for-profit project run to provide activities and services for people with learning difficulties and is based at Hele Business Park.

The team will be at Hele Beach from 10am to 12 noon and would be delighted if any volunteers wish to join them.

Last year they thoroughly cleaned the harbour beach at Ilfracombe, and across the UK volunteers improved land equivalent to the size 80 football pitches and planted 50,000 shrubs, seeds and trees.

Paul Williams, who is co-ordinating the project in Ilfracombe, wants to see as many people as possible come along to help tomorrow:

"We're looking for Action Earth Heroes to join us on our environmental project to learn new skills, and at the same time to do something really worthwhile for the community," he said.

"It is everyone's responsibility to do their bit to tackle climate change. We are hoping to see a big turn out on the day and having some fun too!"

The national campaign is organised by the UK's leading volunteering and training charity, Community Service Volunteers (CSV).

The United Nations has declared 2010 to be the International Year of Biodiversity. As part of the year long celebration CSV Action Earth is committed to raising the awareness of the importance of protecting our natural resources. By supporting CSV Action Earth together we will make a real difference.

If you would like to learn new skills, improve your local environment and have fun at the same time, call Paul Williams on (01271) 855510.

If you would like to register your own project or think you can come up with a good project idea, take part in the campaign and call the CSV Action Earth hotline on (0121) 328 7455.
