Summer Litter Pick up 2018
Volunteers turned up at Wicor Recreation Ground on a sunny June evening and set about clearing the litter from the area. A very productive evening with lots of thanks from passers by
Everything including the Kitchen Sink!
The expression ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ proved untrue when one was found on the foreshore during the Portchester Civic Society’s Beach Clean event on Saturday 15th September.
Nearly one hundred volunteers turned up at the bottom of Hospital Lane to take part, with some arriving from as far afield as Swindon, Oxford, Farnborough and London. The Society has participated in the Marine Conservation Society’s annual survey of the state of Britain’s beaches for over 15 years, where we survey a one hundred metre section of beach, recording every individual piece of litter.
Thanks to everyone who took part and did such a good job whilst enjoying the sunshine.
