First year Campbeltown Grammar School pupils collected a whopping 73kg of litter when they cleaned four of the town’s beaches on GRAB Trust school workshops.

The total does not include large items that could not be weighed, including a shopping trolley, fishing creels, large tangles of fishing rope and net and a door

While the future remains uncertain due to an increase in Covid cases, anyone who would like to book a workshop for their school should email beaches and marine litter project education officer Kerry MacKay on kerry.mackay@argyll-bute.gov.uk.
