Seaham Hall Beach Clean

Date Posted: 07/05/2019 | Posted In: Latest news

Caring for the local environment is a cause that the Interact Club at QE feel very strongly about and to help protect the coast, crucial for the habitats of wildlife, they have spent a weekend cleaning Seaham Hall Beach. Equipped with litter picks and refuse sacks, the group collected 12 bags of litter, the majority of which were plastic bags, bottles and fast food packing. They also encountered and disposed of a large pile of tangled wires, a serious threat to animals, with their efforts being recognised by the Heritage Coast Partnership. The organisation will use the information provided by the College to further their own work in preserving beaches across County Durham.
