Alnwick Area Friends of the Earth has teamed up with National Trust rangers to clean up the beach at Buston Links, south of Alnmouth, this weekend.

The group will meet on Sunday at 10am. Take the second turning on the left off the A1068 after the roundabout at Hipsburn – a footpath with fingerpost. Ordnance Survey map reference NU246095 or sat-nav postcode NE66 3QF.

Lisa Bellamy, of Alnwick Friends of the Earth, said: “We do a beach clean at least once a year and they always attract a lot of our supporters. This year we have a great opportunity to work alongside National Trust rangers who do some brilliant work in protecting our local environment.”

Everyone is welcome – all equipment will be provided – and the session will end with a picnic on the beach, so take your flask and sandwiches.
