Beach teams net 32 bags of rubbish
THE ANNUAL Polzeath beach clean took place on Saturday with more than 40 volunteers clearing 32 bags of rubbish.
The beach clean was organised by Nick Pickles, who formed a BeachCare group to tackle marine debris and litter as the beach is only cleaned sporadically by Cornwall Council contractors Cory.
The clean currently takes place at the end of the summer holiday season in conjunction with Keep Britain Tidy, The National Trust and Polzeath Marine Conservation Group.
Volunteers also cleared a further 11 bags of rubbish over four days on Daymar, Portquin and Greenaway beaches.

Mr Pickles said he would like to make the annual Polzeath beach clean-up a twice-yearly event.
"Litter, mostly plastic, which can last many hundreds of years, is proving more and more destructive to an increasing number of species," he said. "We have cleared over three and a half tonnes of rubbish from Polzeath since we began doing this over three years ago."
