Litter Pick at West Bay Westgate 20th October 2018

On a fine sunny day on Saturday the 20th October 2018 Club members engaged in a litter pick on the beach at West Bay Westgate.

This was part of a larger event involving various Rotary Clubs right across Rotary District 1120 comprising Kent, Sussex, Surrey and parts of outer London. In Thanet a total of three clubs took part cleaning various beaches.

The team about to start the beach clean

Our team filled a total of eight bags with plastic, paper, tin cans, broken glass and even broken plates in just over two hours. It was amazing how much was recovered from a relatively small beach

Some of the beach "combers" (cleaners) half way through the clean up

Everyone found it a very worthwhile experience and it definitely will be repeated
