Volunteers Clean Up Llansteffan Beach
More than 50 people including 35 schoolchildren helped clean up Llansteffan beach as part of Tidy Tuesdays.
They filled 22 bags with litter including 12 blue bags for recycling.
Pupils and staff from Llansteffan and Llangain primary schools took part in the litter-pick as well as a further 15 adult volunteers including five locals, a group from Llanelli, a man from Bridgend who was on holiday in the area and two day-trippers from Carmarthen.
The event was organised under the Pride in your Patch project, which is a joint initiative between the council’s recycling section and housing department, with support from Keep Wales Tidy.
The aim is to improve the quality of the local environment through community action and a series of weekly, organised events are being held in various locations across the county.
The next Tidy Tuesdays event is a planting workshop in Maengwynne, Llanelli, on June 7 between 4pm and 6pm; followed by a litter-pick in Betws on June 14 between 10am and 12pm. For further information on these events and others coming up please visit the website (link below).
Executive Board Member for the Environment Cllr Hazel Evans said: “I would like to thank all those that took part in the clean-up in Llansteffan and gave up their free time for such a worthy cause.
“Carmarthenshire is a popular tourist destination and it is important our beaches are welcoming and safe; not only for visitors but for residents too. By working together we can really make a difference to our environment.”
