A giant beach litter pick will take place on Saturday, July 6 and Sunday, July 7 at Howdiemont Sands, Longhoughton.

It has been organised by three friends – Frances Anderson, Sally Cook and Jane Hardy – to raise awareness of Surfers Against Sewage.

They have organised the event to tidy up the area, but also to get people to tidy up other beaches and take a picture of the mess which will be put on a website and made into a film.

So far around 60 people are signed up to take part.
