Bognor Regis beach clean-up

A final seafront litter pick of the summer around Bognor Regis is taking place tomorrow.

 

The last event of the Beauty of the Beach campaign by Southern Water is being held on Felpham seafront.

 

Arun District Council has teamed up with Spirit FM to promote the campaign to discourage dog fouling, littering, single-use plastic and feeding gulls as part of a package of measures aimed at improving bathing water quality.

 

An Arun spokeswoman said: “The first three events went extremely well. The turnout from members of the public has been phenomenal so far and we would love to see even more people at the final event.”

 

Tomorrow’s clean-up will take place from 11am-3pm around Blakes Road.

 

It will be hosted by presenters from Spirit FM with the aims of engaging with members of the public in the ways they can contribute to a good quality of bathing water.

 

“We will be handing out goody bags filled with promotional items and encouraging members of the public to engage in a litter-pick.

 

“There are children’s activities and chances to win prizes to local leisure facilities.”

 

The campaign is part of a wider package of bathing water enhancement programme measures funded by Southern Water along the seafront between Aldwick and Middleton.

 

 

This has included extra dog poo bins, litter bins and dog/litter signs.

 

Litter, dog fouling education and enforcement patrols have also taken place along the coastline this summer.
