It’s been a week of high tides and winds! And as such, a great deal of sand and debris had been deposited on the promenade.
If it is left on the promenade, it builds up and can make life difficult for wheelchairs, pushchairs and young children on their scooters.
So, on Wednesday, two volunteers spent a couple of hours shovelling and sweeping it all back onto the beach. Unfortunately, we were unable to clear the whole of the prom as the amount of sand gradually took its toll on the elderly volunteers.
Fortunately, the Wednesday morning weather was very good and as we progressed, first coats were removed then cardigans! We concentrated our efforts on the worst areas and did manage to clear the stretch from the western end to the central footpath as can be seen in the before and after photos.
No doubt the volunteers will be back before winter is done!
