ASDA staff to help clear seaweed from Falmouth beaches
2:00pm Monday 10th September 2012 in News
Staff from ASDA Penryn will be carrying out a big seaweed clean up on Gyllingvase Beach and Castle Beach on Wednesday.
The store decided to focus on the beach for their ‘Big Litter Pick Project’, but rather than picking litter they decided to help spruce up the beaches by removing seaweed. The state of the town’s beaches has been a hot topic recently after Cornwall Council stopped removing seaweed.
The store is asking the public to join them on their community clean up on Wednesday, (September 12), starting at 11am.
Members of Falmouth and District Hotels Association and staff at Castle Beach Cafe have already offered to join forces with them to tidy up the beaches.
The store had recently asked the community to nominate areas in need of attention as part of the company's national litter pick week.
Bernadette Snow from Asda said: “We would like to say a big thanks to those who nominated and we hope we can get the same level of support from the community when we clean the beach.
“We think it is important to look after the area in which we live and work and make it an attractive place to be part of. Many hands make light work and with the support of the Falmouth and District Hotels Association, Castle Beach Cafe, our customers and the wider community we hope to make a real difference.”
