Cheerful chatter will rise from the sands at Winterton on Saturday when an army of litter pickers stages a clean-up.
The event is being lead by nurse Caroline Fernandez who was shocked by the amount of rubbish left by the Beast from the East after it threw all it could at the coast last month.
An earlier effort saw some 25 volunteers bag all sorts of rubbish including a carpet of plastic cotton bud stems, and odd items like shuttlecocks, floor coverings, and plastic netting.

She was also inspired by the plight of Frisbee the seal who nearly died after a frisbee became embedded in his neck.
She is staging a second clean-up on Saturday. Meet at the Dunes cafe at 10am.
