Hundreds are expected to roll up their sleeves again for this year’s Seaton Big Clean.
The Saturday, March 4, tidy up, organised by the town council and town development team, takes place from 10.30am
Volunteers will be out and about on the beach and streets to spruce up the resort ahead of the annual Grizzly weekend, which attracts thousands of visitors.
Areas scheduled to be tidied include the beach, Fisherman’s Gap, Promenade area, as well as some town centre streets.
Some great prizes are up for grabs this year, including the award for the most family members; most unusual piece of rubbish; the youngest beach cleaner award; and the oldest beach cleaner award.
