Carnoustie beach clean next Sunday

Eager volunteers from The Co-operative Group and Carnoustie Community Council will be heading to the beach at Carnoustie next Sunday, June 30, on a mission to clean up litter.

Colleagues from branches of The Co-operative Food, The Co-operative Pharmacy and The Co-operative Funeralcare, as well as Co-operative Group members, and their families, will join forces with the community council to help clean up the beach.

Organiser Ken Greenshields, membership officer for The Co-operative Group in Eastern Scotland, said: “The Co-operative plays an important role in the communities it serves, and by getting together with the community council for a simple activity like this we can benefit the local area.

“We’ll be taking harmful and unsightly rubbish off the beach, and away from the sea, contributing directly to the wellbeing of the local community.”

He concluded: “Once we’ve finished the beach should look better and be safer for everyone to enjoy, and we intend to have some fun at the same time.”
