Town development team is mustering volunteers for the annual Big Clean

The big clean up is set to get under way at Seaton.

Volunteers are expected to turn out in force on Saturday, March 1, to clear up after the recent storms which caused damage to the seafront, walkways and flowerbeds

Members of the council’s town development team are organising the Seaton Big Clean which will take place between 11am and 1pm.

Town Crier David Craner will launch the event and many families, businesses and schools groups are expected to take part.

The annual clean-up is well supported by local businesses including the Midweek Herald which has joined as media sponsor.

The first 40 adults and 30 children to volunteer on the day will receive a free t-shirt and Pebbles Café is donating a free bacon/veggie bap with every beverage purchased by volunteers throughout the clean-up.

East Devon District Council is providing vizvests and clean up gear.

Chris Reed of Frank Property, this year’s lead sponsor, said: “We are delighted to support the Big Clean and hope that many people will join us. Having the town looking its best is a great way to promote it.”

Major prizes are up for grabs this year include the Golden Dustbin worth £132, for the team that collects the most rubbish; A prize worth £65 for the team that collect the most interesting piece of rubbish; and a £62 award for the ugliest piece of rubbish collected.

Prizes have been donated by Bay Tree House B and B, Seaton Tramway, The Gateway, Seaton Visitor Centre Trust, local author Bruce Harris, Green Sauce (Tim Maddams) and Seaton and District Chamber of Commerce.

Areas scheduled to be tidied include the Beach, West Walk, Fisherman’s Gap, Promenade Area, Fore Street, Queen Street, Cross Street and Harbour Road. There will also be weeding of flowerbeds.

Volunteers are asked to meet at 10.30 am at Pebbles café. Those attending should wear sturdy shoes and bring gardening or workman’s gloves, children under 14 should be accompanied by an adult.
