Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) and Barefoot Wine have completed a very successful week long a national beach clean-up tour. The ‘Barefoot Friendly’ beach litter tour Started at Porthtowan and visited Porthcawl, Bournemouth, Brighton, Cromer and Tynemouth. In all over 400 people helped during the week’s clean up and over a tonne of litter was removed from the 7 beaches visited!

Andy Cummins, Campaign Officer at SAS, said “We have to say a huge WELL DONE!!! to all the volunteers, over a tonne is a huge amount of litter. We made a very visual difference at the beaches we visited which was great to see. Each beach clean was followed by a delicious, free BBQ on the beach for all volunteers and for those that wanted to stay on afterwards, volunteers, friends and family enjoyed an evening of fun surf quizzes and free Barefoot wine at local watering holes. We hope to be back on tour next year, but you don’t have to wait for us. After your surf/sail/paddle, why not thank the sea by picking up one piece of litter for every good ride you had!”
