Poster campaign urges people to look after beaches

Poster campaign urges people to look after beaches

by Tom Martin (November 2021)

YOUNGSTERS from St Jerome’s Primary School in Formby teamed up with developer, David Wilson Homes, to create the posters as a way of raising awareness of the Great British Beach Clean.

The Great British Beach Clean, which this year was held in September, is an annual event that encourages members of the public to go to the seaside and help clear any litter, plastics and other harmful materials that may find their way into the ocean.

The homebuilder hosted a poster design competition at St Jerome’s with the winners receiving a gift card. The colourful posters were displayed on lampposts at David Wilson Homes’ Pinewood Park development.

The campaign is organised by the Marine Conservation Society in an effort to keep beaches and oceans clean for people and wildlife alike.

Kathryn Monaghan, Headteacher at St Jerome’s Primary School, said: “Our school is proud to support the Great British Beach Clean every year. We believe it is vital that our children understand the importance of keeping our beaches clean in order to protect wildlife and their habitats.

“The poster competition gave us a good opportunity to focus on this important event with the pupils and to remind them of their role in their local community.”
