Bexhill Lions joined members of the Bexhill Environmental Group(BEG) on Saturday morning for the litter pick on the Downs. Before the spring clean began, Vice President Simon Edwards presented them with hi-viz vests featuring both BEG and Bexhill Lions logos. In addition they also received bag hoops, gloves and grabbers.

Fully armed, the group set about the task finding waste all over the area, often in difficult to get at places. They collected a vast array of rubbish; drink cans, bottles, food containers, a discarded tent, plastic bags, clothing, a motocycle seat and a road cone.

Simon commented “April is Lions’ Environmental Awareness Month and we wanted to do something positive to support the dedicated members of BEG. They do a great job in the constant battle against plastic and litter that not only harms the environment but also makes our green open spaces and beaches less attractive to the community”.
