Staff from Fantasy Island and Skegness Pier teamed up with Coastal Access for All for their first beach clean of 2024.

On 22nd April 2024, more than thirty-five Fantasy Island and Skegness Pier staff members braved a wet and windy Tuesday to participate in a beach clean along Skegness Beach.

Working with Coastal Access for All, a charity dedicated to making it easier for everyone to enjoy our wonderful British coastline, the clean-up started from Skegness Pier and headed North. The volunteers spent the afternoon working their way along the shore, ignoring the weather while removing litter and helping to protect the Lincolnshire coastline.

The clean-up was a huge success, enabling staff members to collect an impressive amount of litter and debris and engage with the local community. This event forms part of Fantasy Island and Skegness Pier’s wider initiatives to encourage more sustainable practices and to help protect the local environment.

Heidi Watson, Fantasy Island’s Senior Events Coordinator and the organiser of this collaboration, said, “I am very proud to lead our fantastic team for today’s beach clean and delighted to be working alongside Coastal Access For All. This is the perfect opportunity for Fantasy Island and Skegness Pier to quietly do our bit in our community and for the coastline we all cherish. I look forward to our next organised beach clean event and to being part of many more.”

To help encourage interest in the local environment, Skegness Pier will host a Wildlife Day, including a scavenger hunt, on Tuesday, 23rd July, with Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust. For more information on upcoming Skegness events and initiatives, please visit the Fantasy Island or Skegness Pier.
