A group of Exmouth youngsters have been doing their part to keep the town’s beach clean. 

The five-year-olds from Bassetts Farm have been set a number of home learning ideas during lockdown and all of them chose to clean up the environment. 

Joined by a parent, Amber, Florence, Bea, Emily, Isabel and Jacob found glass bottles, drug paraphernalia and multiple nitrous oxide canisters buired in the sand. 

They filled four bags with other waste left behind by beachgoers. 

“This itself is shocking that their generation are cleaning up after the selfish, mindless people who have no thought for the impact they are causing not only to the environment but to our community,” said Emily’s mother Sarah Finch, who accompanied them on the beach clean. 

“Our future generations & planet will suffer as a result of behaviours like this. 

“They had so much fun doing this that they all want to do it again.”
