Beach Buddies become beech buddies

Beach buddies are coming inland tonight for their latest drive to clean-up the Isle of Man!

The volunteer tidy-up group has won wide support in its campaign to clean the Manx coastline in recent months.

Mountains of litter washed-up or left on beaches has been cleared away - and now the group has plantations in its sights.

Tonight volunteers will tackle Chibbanagh Plantation near the Braaid crossroads just outside Douglas.

The clean-up starts at 6.30pm, meet at the plantation car park, 300 yards on the Douglas side of the Braaid crossroads.

Organiser Bill Dale says he's astonished at the amount of litter dropped by those who use the woods.
