The beautiful Blue Flag beach here is Westward Ho! is just a bit more beautiful now, thanks to a group of volunteers who participated in the Big Spring Clean event!
Over 220 volunteers turned out to help with the event, with roughly 185 of those people were from organised groups from community organisations and local schools.
Rubbish and debris that is often pulled in by the sea and left discarded on the beach and pebble ridge was cleared out by these tireless volunteers.
Not only does this help to restore any beauty that the beach may have lost, but it also makes it a safer place for people, marine life and the dogs who enjoy long walks on the beach.
Pet dogs, Birds and marine animals can sometimes get caught up in this debris, which is a great cause of distress to them.
However, thanks to this great effort, the chances of this happening are now significantly reduced, meaning the area is a lot safer for everyone, both visitors to the area, and those who live in the local community.
Thanks to great efforts like this by local people, you can be assured that our beachside pet friendly holiday accommodation North Devon remains a safe place for you and your furry friends to visit all year round!
