Another Pembrokeshire Beach Clean!

Frainslake Beach Clean 2017Here at Puffin Produce we’re proud to actively be involved in protecting our environment for future generations. We regularly take part in beach cleans organised by the Pembrokeshire Coast Park, National Trust,  Keep Wales Tidy and Surfers Against Sewage.

Over the last few months we have been involved in two beach cleans along the Pembrokeshire Coast, one at Frainslake Beach at the Castle Martin Range, and one at Freshwater West.

Freshwater West Beach Clean 2018At Frainslake beach in the Castle Martin Range, due to restricted access, we found a whole manner or unwanted litter, with the team working with the other volunteers to clear as much rubbish as possible. Frainslake beach is a restricted access beach, so the levels of litter really build up over time. It was great to be involved in the effort to clean the rubbish and provide a more suitable habitat for the wildlife in the area.

Lucy Owen Freshwater West Beach Clean 2018In complete contrast to Frainslake beach, Freshwater West is a well-visited tourist beach but is on an exposed area of the Pembrokeshire coastline and therefore still attracts a large amount of waste. Joining as part of a large team to help clean the beach, we had the pleasure of a visit from BBC’s Lucy Owen, who wanted to know more about the good work of all the parties involved in reducing the waste on our shorelines for a programme to be broadcast on BBC 1 Wales.

It’s great to be involved in protecting and maintaining our environment and beautiful surroundings for future generations, and we look forward to taking part in many more beach cleans to come.
