South West Colleagues Take on Beach Tidy Challenge

Over the past 30 years, Surfers Against Sewage has grown into one of the UK’s most successful marine conservation and campaigning charities.

Through its innovative and ambitious campaigning and education programmes, it is building a community that cares deeply about the planet we live on. That cares passionately about the ocean.

This passion is shared by members of our South West team, seven of whom recently registered their support for the charity’s Million Mile Clean by undertaking a five-mile clean-up of a Devon beach, from Westward Ho! to Northam Burrows, as part of Wain Homes’ Helping Hands charity initiative.

The Million Mile Clean is an annual action bringing ocean activists together to tackle plastic pollution head on and our team volunteered their time, filling bags with plastic, bottles and cans, much of which had been left-over from people having picnics on the sands at Northam Burrows.

This isn’t the first time our South West colleagues have come together to tackle rubbish on our beautiful Devon and Cornish beaches.

Our planning and technical teams have previously spent a day cleaning the sands at WestWard Ho! and Perranporth Beaches, close to our Kingsland and Nansledan developments.

The beaches in the South West are just one reason people love living in this part of the country so we’d like to say thank you to our team for doing their bit for the local community, ecology and the environment.
