Lunch Breaks may also mean Trash Breaks for the People of Brighton
A group of people have organized a beach clean during their lunch time on Nov. 12, between 12 to 2 in the afternoon.
Surfers Against Sewage, an organization whose initiative is to help clean the seas, and Creative Bloom, together has organized this healthy event to prepare for The Meaning Conference.
There will be a series of adventures and organized events which were independently collaborated and well planned. This Fringe Festival, happening during the hours and days of the conference, which The Meaning Conference will be holding, is meant to extend the purpose and spirit of Meaning.
The Meaning Conference happens every November in Brighton. It aims to provide activities that will help people show the real ideas behind just thoughts. It provides these travellers a room to know and learn more.
There will be a great chance for the attendees, while sacrificing their lunch breaks, to be educated on the issues of plastic pollution and how to address it. The sea pollution is a growing concern in Brighton due to se creatures like marine mammals and seabirds dying every 30 seconds due to plastic pollution.
These organizations, together, are appealing to the Brightonians, to help clean our seas and get rid of plastics which kill the sea life. A few minutes out of everyone’s day is enough to tackle the problem of plastics on the seas, as long as it is done together, one lunch break at a time.
Time to clean the seas and educate everyone about plastic solution and its severity. Time to take care of the health and of the sea and the beach . time to make a difference and get involved in making a difference and help fight the plastic problem. It is always a relaxing affair for people who care and are willing to take the time. Even on big events in Brighton, such as the Brighton Pride clean up, there will be a helpful crew to clean up the streets.
Vandals In Portslade School cause Havoc
Community has helped Portslade school after the vandalism incident.
Local businesses and the community from the school have helped to repair the damages that have been done. Play equipment and structure has been vandalized during the weekend.
There was havoc In St. Nicholas Church of England Primary School located on Locks Hill after vandals smashed windows of the play bus of the school, toys have been torn and damaged beyond repair and upholstery ripped.
Andy Richbell, the headmaster told the parents and the school community that, ““Every window was smashed. Most of the seats have been punctured or slashed. All of the books, comics, games, Lego, art materials, toy cars, toy soldiers, bean bags, tables and cushions have had to be thrown out because they were either damaged beyond repair or had fragments of glass in them.”
“I really don’t understand why anyone would want to do this,” he added.
After the vandalism, which must have happened at around 2.45 in the afternoon of Saturday, everyone including the businessmen, parents and the school, have shown support by helping out cleaning the trashed materials. Some have offered financial assistance to the school, while others have donated toys.
So many help have arrived including bus owners from Brighton and Hove who offered to repair the windows. The city council has fenced the school to give the school added security.
“Since the news broke on Monday the response of kindness and generosity from our families, friends of the school and strangers has been overwhelming. So many e-mails, tweets, telephone calls and Facebook posts (whatever they are), offers of donations of money or practical support from so many people! It has been very touching,” the headmaster said.
“When I first saw the state of the bus I wondered whether it was going to be repairable at all.
“With the enormous support of so many people I wouldn’t be that surprised if it was open again (better than before) by half term!” Mr Richbell happily stated.
