Community spirited youngsters from Skegness have been praised after they braved ‘atrocious’ weather to clear coastal pathways in preparation for the recent busy Bank Holiday.

Skegness Army Cadets took part in a recent clearance operation organised by Paul Marshall’s Coastal Access For All campaign.

The young cadets have been described as ‘stalwarts’ of the campaign, having regularly turned out to support the clearance efforts, whatever the weather.

“I want to say a big thank you for all their efforts, not just this year but last year as well,” said Mr Marshall.

“They have been amazing - the weather was absolutely horrendous but they turned out once again to do a great job.”

PCSO Michelle Collins, a long-term Cadet leader, supervised the clearance operation around the Seaview Walk area of the coastline.

The Cadets also swept the beach, removing any litter or dangerous items found amongst the sand.

Mr Marshall will be arranging further clear-up operations in time for the school summer holidays in July and again towards the end of the season in September.

“The Cadets will be with us on both those days but we would like more groups to come and give us a hand,” said Mr Marshall. “At the moment we are looking to clear the Winthorpe area as well but we need more volunteers to be able to cover both.”
