Deal Cadets got involved in the #BigSpringBeachClean a national initiative by Surfers Against Sewage of 570 beach cleans involving 20k people. It also started the event for Plastic Free Deal week. We think there were some 120 people who collected an amazing 164 kilos from the 1.5km section of beach from Sandown Castle towards Sandwich Bay of rubbish mainly avoidable single-use plastic.
In attendance were local scouts, volunteers from Sandown Castle Community Garden and fantastic turnout from Deal Detachment A Company Kent Army Cadets.
