Brownies And Guides Team Up With Beach Clean Group To Tidy Vale Beaches


The 25 Brownies and Guides teamed up with the community group, Volunteer Beach Clean, to tidy up both Gileston Beach and Barry Island's Whitmore Bay over the weekend.

Members of the Guides and Brownies gathered on Gileston Beach on Saturday, collecting bags of rubbish from the coastline using litter pickers and bags loaned to them by the Volunteer Beach Clean group.

Additionally, the youth groups took to the sand of the famous Barry Island beach, Whitmore Bay, to continue their weekend-long campaign to make the Vale's beaches cleaner.

The group managed to miss the rain in their rubbish-removing rendezvous and, after picking up plenty of litter, including used face masks, attendees retired to ice creams on the promenade.

In a post sharing the news on social media, Trevor McGarrigle, leader of the Volunteer Beach Clean group said:


"Thanks to the 25 Romilly Barry Brownies and Guides, amazing job cleaning Barry Island beach. We missed the rain clouds 💙💙 they all had ice creams at the end of their event."

Volunteer Beach Clean's next event at Monknash Beach is taking place on Saturday 31st July. Volunteers will meet at the Plough and Harrow pub at 4pm with leader, Trevor, set to attend the event dressed as a shark should the group's social media post achieve 35 shares from the public.

You can find the group on Facebook, here.
