Volunteer litter pickers are being offered free hot refreshments to encourage them to dispose of rubbish they may find while walking on the South Downs around Seaford.

Brewster’s Coffee Co, based at South Hill Barn in Seaford, successfully bid for funds for litter picking equipment from Lewes and Eastbourne Community Safety Partnership.

The drinks and snacks outlet is now offering a free tea, hot chocolate or Americano every Free Tea Thursday to anyone who borrows a picker to use during their walk and disposes of the litter responsibility.
