Isle of Wight beach gets a clean-up

Despite the cold November weather, a trip to the beach could still be a central part of an Isle of Wight holiday.

Tourists coming to the island will be reassured to hear of a major clean-up operation which has taken place in Binstead recently.

Last weekend, scouts, leaders and families from the 1st Ryde 1st Binstead Scout Group headed to the town's beach headed to the beach to give it a winter clean.

Leader Malcolm McCree told the Isle of Wight County Press: "Although we only had a small group of youngsters, they did a great job and were very enthusiastic, resulting in six bags of assorted rubbish being collected."

The clean-up operation was launched in conjunction with the Campaign for the Protection of Rural England.

Beaches are one of the most popular tourist attractions on the Isle of Wight, with the island boasting an impressive array of 13 award-winning sandy stretches, from Sandown and Ventnor to Yaverland and Ryde.
