Community-led coastal clean-up

Community clean-up

Over 1.5 tons of rubbish was collected from the West Norfolk coastline during a community clean-up on 27 April.

The clean-up, which was organised by the King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Wildfowler Association (KLWNWA) with the assistance of the borough council, covered the stretch of coastline from Wolferton sea wall to the River Ouse in King’s Lynn.

Plastic bottles, general rubbish and debris from the winter’s tidal storm surge were amongst the items collected by the 25-strong KLWNWA team. Local businesses provided tractors and trailers to assist and the borough council collected and disposed of the rubbish appropriately.

Cllr Brian Long, Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: “This has been a really impressive effort by local wildfowlers and we were keen to help. Their work will help to protect the landscape that they, and other members of our community, enjoy.”

Nathan Reed, King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Wildfowler Association spokesman, said: “The clean-up operation is a vital tool to ensure litter build up from seasonal big tides does not impact on wildlife and people using our marsh.

“We would like to thank the council for their support.”
