Helping out at the recently held Big Beach Clean at Hazelbank are Mayor, Councillor Thomas Hogg; Deputy Mayor, Councillor John Blair and Ryan Lemon from Marks and Spencer .


The event, organised by the Marine Conservation Society in partnership with  Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council and  Marks and Spencer, comes after a MCS survey revealed  that litter on UK beaches rose by 6.4% last year. Over 400kgs of litter, including a giant tractor tyre,  was collected by 98 volunteers.
