Thank you to the 20 or so people from Ferryside, Burry Port and Carmarthen who met on Morfa beach to clear plastic and rubbish. Dan Snaith of Tidy Towns and a colleague came in two four wheel drive trucks to pick up a mountain of plastic bags we collected. Good to be in the great outdoors on such a clear spring morning. Big thank you to Colin Butters for organising the event.
