Green group aims to turn the tide on litter
DEDICATED volunteers are aiming to clear the litter dumped on the resort's beach – in part of a drive to spruce up the area.
The modern-day Wombles said that in previous beach clean-ups – organised by the Clee Lincs Neighbourhood Forum – a motorcycle chassis and bicycle frames have been discovered and so, this time, the team of volunteers will also be armed with a metal detector.
Cleethorpes Renaissance Town Team is also getting involved to clean up the area from the North Prom to the Blockhouse, a wartime structure near the North Wall. The debris will be taken away by Community Pride teams.
The event will take place some time after Friday, March 23, when all the equipment will be available – but it is not the only plan the CRTT has for the area.

On Saturday, from 10.30am, teams of volunteers from CRTT will be teaming up with The Woodland Trust to plant trees near the Meridian Line to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
Chairman Barry Waby said the event was being led by the group's vice-chairman Terry Thurogood and marks the start of a drive to transform the Meridian Line area.
He said: "The Woodland Trust has donated 105 saplings as part of its national jubilee celebrations and we are doing our bit by planting them.
"We have a good mix of ash, rowan, oak, royal oak, silver birch and cherry.
"It also ties in with our ongoing project, as we are working to improve the Meridian Line. We are trying to make it more attractive to visitors.
"There is a plinth down there, so we are looking at what we can do with that, and we want to install some information boards with details of what the area is all about."
The group also hopes to make tracks to improve the look of Cleethorpes Railway Station with sculptures and plants.
After taking advice from the Friends of Market Rasen Railway Station, volunteers aim to work in conjunction with volunteers from Cleethorpes In Bloom to implement some of their ideas.
Anyone wishing to join in the projects, can call Mr Waby on 01472 690446.
