Beach Clean Diary

April 30, 2019 / Abbie Baynes  / 

Spring’s Abbie Baynes joined Hydro Flask charity – Surfers Against Sewage – on their latest Spring Beach Clean. Read her story of nature, nurdles and nudism below…

“After a 6:30 am set off, we headed down to the coast. The weather, initially forecasted to be dark and windy, was glorious and sunny and the waves glistened as they danced onto the shore.

“Perranporth beach looked spotless to the untrained eye, but we later learned that the strong coastal winds drag any litter three miles to the opposite end of the beach, dumping it against the rocky cliff edge. Access is limited to this part of the beach, with only those willing to walk the distance visiting. We also learned that this end of the beach was a nudist paradise. We could be in for quite a treat!

“The grunt of a Land Rover, clearly beginning to admit defeat to the elements, rumbled in the distance, pulling up beside us. We hopped in the back and with a jolt of the engine we headed down to the far end of the beach to uncover what plastic treasures had been washed up.

What brought you to Spring PR all those years ago?

“I was just about to go to university to study marketing but was struggling to come to terms with three more years of education and having to quit my part-time job to do so. Much to my parents’ dismay, I looked into alternative options and found that I could do a higher-level apprenticeship which would give me the best of both worlds. That’s when I came across Spring PR. I loved the idea of working in a small, friendly team and a business that was growing with room for me to develop. 

 “They were looking for someone to do digital marketing whilst attending college. I remember being terrified when I pulled up, dressed in my mum’s brand-new shirt (sorry, mum!) for my first interview. Thankfully, Stephanie liked me enough to hire me (well, she hasn’t said otherwise yet!) and so my marketing career began.”
