Portholland Clean Up
Updated: Aug 19, 2019
We received a request this week, to help remove a large fishing net from Portholland beach, near St Austell.
Fortunately we were able to get there today with enough volunteers to try and remove it. The tide had moved it around the beach during the week and it was important to remove it ASAP before it reflected. It was huge and took a lot of sawing, cutting and muscle, with several of us dragging pieces off the beach. We lifted it into two vehicles and took it away to be disposed of by Odyssey Innovation Ltd who can recycle it into kayaks.
Many Thanks to Maria and Stan Tomczynska who reported it to us, sent photos and helped us today with getting it off the beach.
Great team work - Thanks Guy and Deb!
