Cromer beach clean nets a handsome haul
A clutch of environmentally-aware volunteers left the Gem of the Norfolk coast sparkling even more than ever after a sun-soaked beach clean-up on Sunday.
Families and individuals from Cromer Parish Church with St Martin's collected more than a dozen bags-full of rubbish in just over one hour of scouring the east beach in the town.
Sections of carpet, plenty of plastic bags and half-finished lunches were among the items found during the trawl, which was one of the events during the church's Passion for Life mission.
It followed another event on Saturday, where church members were surprised by a visit from shadow chancellor Ed Balls as they handed out free bacon rolls and hot drinks outside the parish church in the morning.
Mr Balls was in the town to join Labour local election candidates on the campaign trail.
