Eventa Group get on board our big Brighton beach clean-up day
An organiser of stag and hen groups is calling on visitors to clean up their act.
The Eventa Group is supporting the Take It Home campaign by attending the Argus Big Beach Clean Up on Monday.
Rockinghorse, the Brighton-based children's charity, is also joining the growing army of volunteers.
The Argus Take It Home campaign is aimed at beachgoers, and asks them to take their rubbish with them when they have finished on the beach.
The clean-up operation has the full support of Brighton and Hove City Council and Cityclean staff who have pledged to clear all the waste collected on the morning.
Volunteers from businesses, restaurants, bars, attractions and hotels across the city are joining together to clean up as much possible in an hour.
Chris Joy from hairdresser City Barbers in Portland Road said he was delighted to get on board.
Lynsey Hamp at The Eventa Group in Queens Road said: “Brighton is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the country and has a beach that we should all be proud of.
“In order to maintain its reputation it is essential that we keep it clean. I think the Take it Home campaign is a great way of raising awareness and highlighting the importance of visitors taking their rubbish home with them. There is nothing worse than sitting on the beach surrounded by litter, especially if you have children with you. Hopefully the campaign will encourage everyone to think twice about leaving rubbish behind.”
