A group of willing locals gathered together through Facebook to tackle cleaning Wemyss Bay Beach last Sunday.
Around 40 people gathered and worked the length of the beach, cleaning around 20 bags of rubbish away.
Many more people want to be involved and so a Facebook group has been set up to organise similar events in the future with the aim to keep the beach clean as well as tackle some of the other areas in the locale such as the banks of the Kelly Burn and around the caravan park.

A second beach clean has been organised to get to the rocks and edges of the beach. Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/407928626320229/
All are welcome to join in, bring your own bags and gloves!
Wemyss Bay was visited by royalty today when HRH Princess Anne, in her role of president of the Scotch Beef Club, visited Mearns T. McCaskie Butchers to officially open a new, high tech butchery production premises behind the shop.
Brenda Campbell from Friends of Wemyss Bay Station was on hand to snap a photo of the visit!
According to the Largs and Millport, she was scheduled to meet with the Ovens family and staff during a tour of the new facility, which has been developed following an investment of around £800,000.
