Over 30 volunteers turned up this morning at Weld Rd to help clean up the beach. There have been a lot of irresponsible nonsense written about Birkdale beach. Some foolish folk have described it as 'the worst beach in the country' and other ridiculous things. You can read the scientific evidence here.
Anyway today was an initiative set up with Sue Maquire, the Lib Dem councillor from Cambridge Ward, and some dog walkers. Sue was supremely well organised and rubber gloves and bin bags were on hand.
We had little excitement when a horse broke free. Aidan was on hand and with great calmness took control of events..
