On August 3rd Grange Soroptimists with Hannah Barnes from the Morecambe Bay Partnership https://www.morecambebay.org.uk/ organised a Beach clean and were astounded that 50 people turned out to pick up litter on Grange foreshore to improve the marine environment. 46.5 Kg of rubbish was collected in 2 hours! This was a very appropriate project as July 27th – Aug 11th is National Marine week. https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/get-involved/campaign/national-marine-week
The Soroptimists will be on the Promenade, Grange-over-Sands LA11 7DH between the two cafes on Saturday 17th August 2 – 4 pm for the “From Trash to Treasure” event ( weather permitting)! This will use some of the items collected to produce a work of art. ALL WELCOME especially children ( must be accompanied by an adult)
