What a great community effort from everybody today. 50 pairs of hands made a big difference to a special stretch of coastline in North Devon. Over 40 bags of marine litter were removed from Crow Point, we even found a grenade.....left in the capable hands of the coastguards of course! Thank you to all the #volunteers.
