Anyone wishing to get stuck in can roll up their sleeves and join in the cleanup on Friday.

AN event is being held this week to give Northam Burrows and the Pebble Ridge a spring clean for National Climate Week.

Anyone wishing to get stuck in is urged to help out in one of three cleanups on Friday and bring with them warm clothing and appropriate footwear.

Local students will be taking part in the event, with Mrs Recycle on hand to offer advice and run educational events in the Biosphere’s inflatable dome.

Refuse bags, gloves and maps will be provided to everyone participating and Tesco will be supplying refreshments.

Another will meet at 1pm at the Pebble Ridge car park, and this will provide an opportunity to get involved with the marine waste survey.

The final group will meet at 2pm near the Burrows Centre, and the walk out to the cleaning spot will provide a chance for some bird spotting.

Councillor Gaye Tabor, lead member for the natural and built environment, said: “Northam Burrows Country Park is there for everyone to enjoy.

“The Pebble Ridge and the Atlantic provide a stunning backdrop and I’m thrilled that so many people have pledged their support for this event.”
