The nursery said the children became concerned about the sea creatures and how they can be affected by rubbish.

Staff and children took a trip down to the beach with their litter-pickers to clean up the beach to protect the sea creatures and make the beach a tidier place for visitors.

Gemma Brown, who manages Beach Hill Nursery alongside the owner of the nursery Lisa Nash, said: “We are so proud of them all showing such care and concern for their environment that they are growing up in. They are going home talking about how important it is to put rubbish in the bin and not on the streets as it might blow into the sea.

"It's amazing to see the knowledge our children are gaining and using it with in their everyday lives sharing something they are passionate about. The children have expressed they would like to continue to litter pick on the beach and continue to care for the sea creatures.”
