Wayne’s world – picking up litter everywhere he goes

Wayne Dixon, the country’s first Keep Britain Tidy Ambassador, visited Hastings last week.

Wayne along with his dog Koda is walking the coast of Great Britain, picking up litter as he goes. He has been walking since February 2016 and has covered 3,700 miles. He is walking to raise awareness of litter and particularly litter by the sea.

He was met by some local volunteers from Tidy Up St Leonards, who walked with him as he made his way along Hastings seafront.

Richard Wesley, from Tidy Up St Leonards said: “John Funnel organised us as a group two years ago and we have grown from three to 50 volunteers in that time. Please join us!

“We work closely with Hastings Borough Council to keep our town clean; we are looking forward to seeing the improvements with the new in- house street service.”

Wayne’s inspirational walk around the coastal towns of GB is in memory of his father for the MIND charity.
