LIFEGUARDS stationed at Chalkwell Beach joined forces with other volunteers and groups to conduct a large spring clean of the beach, and make it sparkle.
Chalkwell Lifeguards Volunteers teamed up with Win O’Sullivan from Southend Beach Care, Scott from Packed with Smiles charity and 60 employees from Howdens Insurance Brokers, all of whom travelled down on coaches from London to take part in the Great British Spring Beach Clean.
They collected from Chalkwell Beak, and along to Joselyn’s Beach to the west, filling a total of nine rubbish bags with plastic and other waste from the shoreline.
Chalkwell Lifeguards Volunteer Maurice Jardine said: “It was an amazing Community event on Thursday afternoon in the lovely Spring sunshine to make our beaches at Chalkwell sparkle in time for the big Coronation Day on Saturday.
“The visitors to our Club house today were truly international, I talked to one gentleman from Bogota in Columbia and another from Hong Kong and they both travelled all the way to the UK especially for this event.
“Environmental plastic pollution is truly a global problem!”
