The States of Guernsey Environment Department encouraged Guernsey residents to pick-up litter from the island’s beaches during the weekend of 23 and 24 July 2011.  Even though the weather was poor people did manage to fulfil their commitment to conduct a beach clean.

Jan Dockerill visited Moulin Huet.  She reported that there wasn’t a significant haul from the beach but “there was a nasty coil of coated barbed wire which was fixed through with thick steel wire.”  She not seen anything like this before and was glad to be able to remove it from the beach.

She generally cleans Moulin Huet every four to six weeks and always for Beach watch in September. Fortunately, given the steep climb back to the bins in the car park, its unusual for there to be much more than plastic bottles and polystyrene pieces on the sea shore at Moulin Huet.
