Volunteers Have Been Cleaning Beach for Years

On August 17th, 2012 By 

A 65-year-old man has been cleaning the beach in Marazion, Cornwall for years as well as several of his friends. The volunteers have been taking care of the place for years every morning while walking their dogs.

Roger Salter is from Goldsithney and he admits that sometimes he had to clean a lot of rubbish from the beach. Every day when he walks his dog he picks up a bag of junk and even more than one sometimes. The place is popular and many tourists visit the beach daily. Probably that is why the problem gets worse according to Roger who says the junk has become more for the last several years.

The Cornwall Council used to pay a cleaning service to take care of the place but this year it’s different. The Council did not hire a service and all that the St Aubyn Estate, which manages the beach, is going to do is to provide all volunteers with the needed equipment.

The mayor of Marazion, Bernie Hall said there are bins on the beach which should be used responsibly by people who visit it.
