Friends of Sefton Coast celebrate bumper Year Of The Volunteer campaign

Everybody knows Sefton has few rivals for the title of most beautiful British coastline.

The 22 miles spanning between Southport and Seaforth are some of the most iconic, idyllic and important stretches of coastline in the UK and are home to a menagerie of fauna and flora.

But it takes a lot of work to make the coastline the sandy success it is.

The Green Sefton coast and countryside division are supported by hundreds of volunteers called the Friends of Sefton Coast, who give up their time throughout the year to keep the coastline beautiful.

Through the 2018 Year Of The Volunteer, an incredible 2,300 people volunteered 5,200 hours of their time over 76 clean-up events that saw thousands of bags of rubbish cleared from our coastline.

From beach cleans to buckthorne bashing, there’s always plenty to get your teeth into on the Sefton Coast and Green Sefton are always looking for more people to get involved.

To find out about the list of events and activities between January and March 2019, or to get involved, check out the Friends of Sefton Coast Calendar.
