Condoms, bags of dog muck, nails, used facemasks and underwear was among the latest haul of litter picked up from the beach and town by Budleigh Salterton Lions Club.
The Budleigh Lions’ members have been holding weekly clean-ups since July, focussing their efforts on the Lime Kiln car park, the seafront, beach, plus the High Street, The Green and other residential areas.
The club is inviting donations of litter-pick equipment, or funds, so members can continue with the community clean-ups.
Richard Allen, club president, said: “We get lots of positive comments and people thanking us during the walks.
“We find lots of cigarette ends, various amounts of general litter, discarded masks, underwear, socks, shoes, fishing tackle, plastic cable ties and more and more nails where people have burnt wood for barbecues on the beach.
“Items we regularly pick up, with the correct equipment, are condoms and dog poo bags.
“What is the point of putting your dog’s poo in a bag and then leaving it on a footpath or worse – throwing it into the hedge or tree?”
Mr Allen said one of the Lions’ core aims, worldwide, was to ‘sustainably protect and restore our environment to improve the well-being of all communities’.
