Helensburgh Eco-Congregations in Beach Clean Up

Twenty volunteers from the three Eco-congregations in Helensburgh cleaned the beach from Kidston Park to Cairndhu.

The rubbish had mainly been washed up from the River Clyde,  but there was also a large amount of peoples food litter. The group removed several large items of furniture, piping and pallets. The smaller items in great number were plastic bottle tops and cotton bud sticks. The local churches do this beach clean each year. This year there were fewer big items like tyres, but more smaller items like cans and bottles. The beach would look so much better, if people took more care disposing of their rubbish.
