A RESIDENTS’ group has helped clear up a beach by collecting seaweed.

On Monday, the Friends of Shoebury Common and members of the congregation from Shoebury Baptist Church helped collect ten bags of seaweed from Shoebury Common beach.

The group hopes the beach can be accredited with a Blue Flag for cleanliness next year.

You could start the ball rolling, being a Shoeburyite, get the local residents down there, a brick a day would make a big difference, as you say its in need of a recharge

That is a fair point, a group of residents could clear the horrible beach of brick,rock,glass,pla
stic and other unsightly things, it has always had a dirty feel and the mess left there after hours is a lot, Cory do come early Sunday to tackle all the crap shame theres a lot of slobs around.

Because the brickfields were here in 1840, with the grassed area sitting on those deposited bricks and rubble means that as erosion continues, so will these unsightly bricks, save from building a wall against the raised grassed area.

Good info, so it will always resemble a Builders yard, and thats why for me anyway its unattractive, the grass area(old car parking) that got fenced off was ideal for BBQ's years back lots of room, but that got knocked on the head and replaced by crap communal ones , do they ever get used?
