The Brighteners Jumping July Update

Schools & Education: One of the solutions to the (beach) litter problem is that children and young people are educated as to why dropping litter is not only anti-social, and an offence, but that it is very bad for the environment, and for animals.
 
A member of The Brighteners works at Foxfield School in Moreton, and we’ve visited the school and discussed some educational options.  All still at the early stages, but encouraging.
