Jim Skinner reports on the Tide Mills monthly cleanup yesterday.

The Friends of Tide Mills completed their April meeting yesterday.15 members, including four very welcome new members, were blessed with glorious sunshine and managed to collect 17 bags of assorted rubbish.

It is lovely to see some of the vegetated shingle plants starting to emerge at last. In a few weeks the whole area behind the beach will be a sea of colour once more; always worth seeing and appreciating. Also spotted were a pair of Ringed Plovers, obviously intending to breed, if possible. We have a couple of breeding warning signs in place still and if visitors could avoid the area between the signs, this would be much appreciated.

Our next meeting is Sunday the 19th of May, always the third Sunday of the month,  from 10.00am to 12.00 noon. Meet at the beach end of the old village road. As always, all are very welcome to join our little band, to help us keep this special place as is and cared for, for the gentle enjoyment of all visitors.
