Show your love for our beautiful beaches on Valentines Day by taking part in some activities at Sandbanks.
Borough of Poole and Bournemouth Borough Council have joined forces with the Litter Free Coast and Sea Campaign to keep their coastlines free from litter.
This campaign is aimed at reducing the amount of marine and beach litter, and raising awareness of this issue with the general public visiting the coast.
To launch this campaign both councils are organising community litter picks along their shore-lines. Poole will be litter picking between Sandbanks and Shore Road and Bournemouth volunteers working between Alum Chine and Durley Chine.
Help beautify our beaches after the winter by clearing some of the wind swept litter and debris that has gathered there. These community litter picks will also contribute to part of the criteria required to retain the Blue Flag Award at these beautiful beaches.
Cllr Judy Butt, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Public Engagement and Participation, Borough of Poole, said: "Poole has world class beaches and we hope that people will come along on 14 February to take part in the activities on offer and help clean the beach ready for the summer."
Poole volunteers are being asked to meet at the Sandbanks Beach Office, and Bournemouth volunteers meeting at Alum Chine Beach Office.
Both events are being held on Tuesday 14 February between 11am and 2pm. All equipment will be provided and for more information contact a Greenspace Community Officer on 01202 262753.
