Jim Skinner reports:

The Friends of Tide Mills completed its June meeting on Sunday when 24 of us - a record number for our little group, fantastic - managed just six sacks of rubbish this time around, which means that generally speaking the whole area from the Buckle to East Pier is, once again, in very fine shape.

We would especially like to thank everybody who visits this special area, who not only ensure they leave no litter, but also, we know in some cases, actually undertake litter sweeps themselves. Together we are all making sure Tide Mills remains well cared for and championed. Many thanks to you all.

We would like to remind visitors that Wheatears, Ringed Plovers, Skylarks and several other species of bird are nesting and fledging just now, and obviously we ask that everyone keeps disturbance to a minimum if at all possible. If dogs could be kept under tight control that would also be most appreciated.

Our next meeting is Sunday the 20th of July, (always the third Sunday of each month), meeting at 10.00am at the waymarker adjacent to the beach at the road leading from the level crossing. Our meetings last nominally for two hours, but all are welcome no matter how much time can be spared.
