Be a Lone Beach Cleaner in 2017!

   

 

Here’s a new way to get fit – come to Cleveleys, enjoy the fresh air and gentle exercise, spending time litter picking on the beach at a time to suit yourself.

 


You’ll be doing something which is vitally important for the safety of marine wildlife and the appearance of our shoreline - it’s hugely important that we all take responsibility for the environment, safe disposal and collection of waste plastics and looking after our beaches. Plus which, think of all the calories you’ll burn off, the fresh air you’ll breathe and the views across the beach that you will enjoy. What better way to enjoy this beautiful place!

Cleveleys branch of Skipton Building Society take part in ‘Giving something back to our communities’ with members of staff cleaning up Cleveleys beach.

 

Grassroots Giving was launched in 2013 to celebrate Skipton Building Society's 160th anniversary and has so far donated £241,500 to 483 small community groups across the country. In 2016, we have another £81,500 in pots of £500 to give to 163 organisations.

To demonstrate Skipton Building Society's commitment to local communities through action, as well as money and to launch the Grassroots Giving we organised "The Great Grassroots Giving Community Clean-up" involving colleagues from all around the country.

Skipton wanted to demonstrate how we can improve our surroundings.

Branch Manager Ann Nester said "Litter picking and cleaning up local communities in general is very much in keeping with the Grassroots Giving ethos - making local communities more attractive and better places in which to live. It emphasises the Society's aim of: "Giving something back to our communities''.

"The Cleveleys Team chose to take part in the Beach Cleaning as we felt that we could make a bigger impact, each member of staff spent 1 hour and altogether we collected 8 bin bags of rubbish from the beach.

When you have a casualty who is unconscious and not breathing, you ring 999 and their process determines whether you need to shock them with a defib to bring their heart back into rhythm. If they do, they tell you where it is and give you the code to release it from the box. The defib then talks you through what to do with it. You can't shock them if they don't need it - they are clinically dead at this point so you can't make them worse! 60,000 people a year have a cardiac arrest in public open spaces - without treatment they have a 4-5% chance of survival and with a defib that raises to an 80% chance. Which is why we wanted one on our beach. Rossall Beach Buddies - making our beach a better place for everyone, casualty's included!

Scarecrows

You may remember we took part in the Fleetwood Scarecrow Festival earlier in the year. Here is a comical short film showing how we made the scarecrows at the community centre one afternoon!

 

   
     

QUEENS AWARD

We are delighted to have been chosen to receive the prestigious Queens Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS) - the MBE for groups of volunteers who work in their local community for the benefit of others. The group also received an invitation for representatives to attend a Royal Garden Party at Buckingham Palace, and we have been presented with a certificate signed by the Queen and an exclusive commemorative crystal by Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Lancashire at a formal reception at County Hall, Preston.
