Beach awareness day hailed a huge success
A MARINE awareness event held at Crosby beach has been hailed as a huge success by organisers.
Friends of Crosby Beach put on the stalls and activities on Saturday, May 18 for families to come and find out more about the coastline.
A spokesperson for the group said: “Last year’s marine awareness event, the first organised by us, was really good - but the verdict was that this one was even better!
“The beach was buzzing with people, children and activity.”
Some of the groups who had information stalls at the event included Hightown Beach Clean Group, Lancashire Wildlife Trust, Greenpeace and the RSPB.
There was also two guided walks with around 60 people taking part.
He said: “It is always a privilege to show people the splendour of the Sefton coast, especially Crosby beach and the dunes.”
As well as all the awareness raising about the urgent need to protect the marine environment, there was lots of activities for children to enjoy.
Youngsters were asked to paint-stamp shoals of fish swimming in the sea and create sand sculptures of giant turtles.
Friends of Crosby Beach will hold a beach clean on a Saturday, June 8 and then on Sunday, June 23, both between 10.30am-12.30pm and meeting at the prom next to Crosby Leisure Centre.
