Fast-growing group is aiming to reduce the amount of plastic in Sidmouth
Sidmouth Plastic Warriors is a fast-growing group of Sidmouth residents concerned about the plastic rubbish that is blighting our seas and beaches.
The group was set up by the enthusiastic and energetic Denise Bickley, who keeps everyone motivated with her regular Facebook updates and organised events around the town.
The group aims to firstly clean up the plastic and other rubbish from the beaches and the long-term aim of making Sidmouth a one-use-plastic-free town.
Working alongside others, including Sidmouth in Bloom and Surfers against Sewage, they hold regular beach cleans to deal with the immediate problem.
