Morgan Sindall calls for volunteers with Chesil Beach Spring Clean

Staff at Morgan Sindall are calling for volunteers to take part in a Spring Clean at Chesil Beach on Sunday 4th March 2012.

The construction firm, which is currently on site building a new £800,000 extension to the Chesil Beach Centre, is working together with the Dorset Wildlife Trust and the wardens of The Chesil Bank and Fleet Nature Reserve to organise the litter-pick ahead of the completion of the redeveloped visitor centre.

The clean-up will start from the Chesil Beach Centre and run from 10am to 12pm. Volunteers wanting to take part should wear appropriate warm clothing and garden gloves or similar.

Paul Gale, area director for Morgan Sindall, says: “We are looking forward to getting our hands dirty and doing our bit to ensure Chesil Beach is kept tidy - and what better way than with a Spring Clean.

“The rare and beautiful beaches around the centre provide vital natural habitat for our marine wildlife, so it’s really important that we all do our bit and look after this natural heritage site. We hope lots of people join us at the beach clean-up.”

Emily Brown, Chesil Beach Project Officer at Dorset Wildlife Trust, says: “Beach cleans are a great way to do something practical to help wildlife, so we are really pleased that Morgan Sindall and local volunteers are getting involved. Beach litter is not only unsightly but it can be very harmful to wildlife, so please come and join us and help make Chesil beautiful and safe for wildlife!”

The extension of the centre is due to complete in July and will provide a range of additional facilities including educational space and indoor catering.
