Our Team Beach Clean Day!

31 May 2024

We are all big fans of the beach here at Edward Cooke Family Law and are spoilt for choice with plenty of stunning beaches close to both our Chilgrove and Brighton offices. When we heard about the Surfers Against Sewage “Million Mile Clean” it was a unanimous decision amongst the team to take part and help clear some of the coastline we all so enjoy.  
The team gathered at Felpham Beach in Bognor Regis last week to support the campaign and spend some time clearing litter from the beach.  
What is “The Million Mile Clean” 
In 2021 Surfers Against Sewage launched their Million Mile Clean. The idea was intended to be simple but highly effective – rally 100,000 volunteers to each clean 10 miles of blue, green or city space each year. “To get together and feel the benefits of community spirit, being outdoors and making a difference. To pick up the trash that covers our coastlines, canal paths, bridleways and city streets.”  
The Million Mile Clean is now the biggest initiative of its kind in the UK - an annual action bringing Ocean Activists together to tackle plastic pollution head on. We were delighted to support this ongoing initiative with our recent beach clean.  
Our Beach Clean Day 
The team, along with family and friends, worked hard and picked up more than 4kg of rubbish across a 2-mile stretch of beach. A well deserved drink was enjoyed afterwards at The Fox in Felpham.

Edward Cooke commented,  
“Our regular team meetings give us a chance to put forward ways in which we can make a positive impact to our local community and the idea of a beach clean was one that every member of the team was keen to embrace.  
We all love the great outdoors, but are also aware of the growing issue of litter in the beautiful spaces that we visit. The beach clean was a great opportunity for the team to do something a little different and make a dent on the litter accumulating at one of our stunning local beaches. It was empowering to do something about the plastic pollution issue as a team and we are proud of the difference we made.”
