Young Environmentalists Collect 25kgs Of Waste From Cleethorpes Beach
Tollbar Multi Academy Trust students - from the Sixth Form College and Reynolds Academy, along with members of staff - who joined forces to pick up discarded waste on Cleethorpes Beach as part of the Annual Beachwatch Survey, organised by the Marine Conservation Society.
More than 25kgs of litter and waste was collected from a 110-metre stretch of Cleethorpes Beach by young environmentalists from Reynolds Academy, who joined forces with students from Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College.
Some of the youngest and oldest children at Tollbar Multi Academy Trust worked closely together to clean up the stretch of beach, as part of the Annual Beachwatch Programme organised by the Marine Conservation Society.
A record of all waste items was carefully collated to help the Conservation Society build a picture of the health of our seas, shoreline and marine wildlife. The results will be published in early 2020.
The two Academies have taken part in this survey for more than a decade, and Rebecca Scott, Reynolds Academy Principal, said: "The data collected by the students and younger pupils over the years is beginning to form incredibly useful evidence for the MCS in their work lobbying for action over marine conservation.
"I am immensely proud of the 12 young pupils and six members of Reynolds Academy staff who gave up their time to take part in this survey."
