The annual Beach Clean at Carrick Castle was carried out at 10.30 hrs on Sunday 24th May 2015.

Six people helped clean up the beach – Gordon Adam; Liz Evans; Douglas Locke; Bill Miller and Ian & Dorothy Nicholson, all from Carrick Castle.

Just 7 bags of rubbish were collected plus a lot of old iron and a plastic bin lid. The A & B Council agreed to collect this rubbish. It was good to note that the rubbish collected this year was half that of last year (14 bags plus other items).

Thank you to all who gave up an hour of their time to make our Carrick Castle beach free of rubbish.

What was a concern however was the amount of tree branches and garden waste being dumped on the shoreline by local residents – this shouldn’t be happening,
