25 March - Today, on a cracking spring day, about a dozen eco-warriors of all ages and five dogs of all ages gathered to clean the beach at Soar Mill Cove. All the eco-warriors worked hard, four of the dogs had a good swim and, as can be seen from the size of the filled bags, the beach is now much cleaner. The eco-warriors, but not the dogs, were then given a delicious Devonshire cream elevenses by the Soar Mill Cove Hotel, to the management of which they are extremely grateful.
