No experience is needed just a willingness to get involved and improve your local area.

The events are open to everyone of any age with the Boggle Hole event starting at 1pm and the Whitby gathering getting underway at 2pm.

Afterwards there will be the opportunity to ‘repurpose’ the waste via craft activities and transform it into artwork at the Boggle Hole event.

As well as the clean-up, each youth hostel will also be hosting free candlelit ‘unplugged’ music sessions with local folk band Felka (YHA Boggle Hole) and acoustic Americana artist Steve Lowis (YHA Whitby).

The candlelit session at Whitby begins at 7pm, while the Boggle Hole entertainment starts at 8pm.

Peta Nugent, manager of YHA Boggle Hole, said: “At YHA Boggle Hole we value our environment and strongly believe in respecting our surroundings.

“Our World Earth Day beach clean is a great opportunity to do what we do best – bring people together, get young people engaged in their surroundings, make a difference and, importantly, have fun.

“We hope that families will join us for what will be a fantastic event. There’s no commitment, they simply have to turn up and have fun.”
