Blitzing the beach

A COASTLINE clean-up is on the way for some of Hartlepool’s best known sands.

The Seaton Carew area will be targeted on Sunday, September 16, and you can join in with the green event from 10am to 12.30pm.

The Hartlepool Borough Council countryside team will be leading the way in the Seaton Big Beach Blitz as part of International Coastal Clean-up Day.

All litter picking equipment will be provided and prizes will be awarded for the most unusual items of litter found.

Those interested in taking part should meet at the coach park in Seaton Carew.
