Southsea Marina – litter pick success
On 25 May, the team at Southsea Marina spearheaded a successful litter-pick event, which saw 50 berth holders attend and a substantial amount of rubbish collected from the coastline by the marina.
The litter picking volunteers, led by Berthing Master, Liam Feasey, carried out a two hour clean-up along the foreshore and towards Milton Common and back to rid the area of plastics and other rubbish.
On arriving back at the marina volunteers were then invited to stay for a complimentary lunch, provided by the onsite cafe ‘Marina Bar’ and were also given a re-useable water bottle as a token of thanks for their hard work on the day.
The event was a huge success with participants keen to take part in similar events in the future. The morning enabled attendees to put ‘green intentions’ into action and actively help to keep the local environment tidy and free of plastics and other waste.
Rupert Bremer, Southsea Marina Manager, said: “I am delighted that so many people participated and that it was such a productive exercise. At Southsea Marina we are determined to help the environment any way we can and hopefully this will help encourage others to recycle and to look after the local area.”
