8am Saturday the 3rd of May we started to roll up at the beach. The weather gods were kind to us and the rain stayed away. Our task turned out to be slightly more work than we had anticipated. The winter storms had littered the beach with debris. So there we all were thinking this should only take an hour! We were split into teams and slowly, slowly, raked, sieved and cleaned all the sticks and rubble away from the sand. The Prangins Development Team who own and look after the beach kept us filled up with coffee and snacks and rewarded us all with wine and lunch at the end of a hard morning’s work. It turned out to be a fantastic morning. We all had fun. A few of our number had to be dragged away as they wanted every twig banished from the beach!
THEY MAY STILL BE DOWN THERE, WORKING AWAY!
