North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) has boosted the number of litter pickers available along the coast following the huge popularity and success of the #2minutebeachclean campaign.

NNDC has received enquiries from larger groups keen to join in the campaign and these new pickers mean that even more people can get involved. NNDC also provides thick plastic bin bags with hoops and will collect the rubbish the groups find at the beach.

It means that more people can use the beach-cleaning equipment, which has been available for smaller groups for some time to help keep the district’s beaches (six of them being Blue Flag beaches) rubbish-free.

The #2minutebeachclean has been a popular activity for many along the North Norfolk coast since they were introduced in 2017. An additional five beach clean boards, sponsored by NNDC, were installed in April this year and have continued to be popular.

The most recent group (pictured) that has taken advantage of the litter picking equipment was a sales team from Mars Wrigley Confectionery. They undertook the beach clean as part of their volunteer program and wanted to do something for the area covered by their sales division.
