Kingcombe were pleased to support a local Cub group for a spot beach cleaning over the weekend, providing them with gloves, litter picking tools, black bin bags and hand wipes.

Not only does this educate the children on the issues surrounding single-use plastics but it also connects the children to the wider aquatic environment, encouraging them to look after the beaches and enjoy outdoor activities.

Scott Rice, our Fisheries and Maintenance Manager, joined the group on Sunday at West Bay in Dorset (the home of Broadchurch) to help with the beach clean.  As a true angler, Scott finished the trip by teaching the children how to drop net off the pier, where they managed to catch Pout, Whiting, Mackerel and whitebait along with a few shore crabs and prawns.
