More than thirty-five Fantasy Island and Skegness Pier staff members braved a wet and windy conditions to participate in a beach clean.

The event took place on Skegness Beach on Tuesday, with staff members working alongside Coastal Access for All, a charity dedicated to making it easier for everyone to enjoy our wonderful British coastline.

Teams started from Skegness Pier and headed north, with the volunteers working their way along the shore, ignoring the weather while removing litter and helping to protect the Lincolnshire coastline.

Organisers say the clean-up was a huge success, enabling staff members to collect an ‘impressive’ amount of litter and debris and engage with the local community.

"This is the perfect opportunity for Fantasy Island and Skegness Pier to quietly do our bit in our community and for the coastline

we all cherish.
