From early beginnings of building sandcastles and splashing in the sea on family holidays, to surfing cold winter waves and exploring the coastline by kayak, the sea has always drawn me in. Now as I bring my own children to enjoy our local beaches I see more than ever the importance of protecting these special places.
As a rep, look forward to seeing positive change in how people use the coastline. I believe education and awareness has a big role to play.
I am also excited to bring awareness to a wider range of people as I lead beach cleans through the community created by the local coastal leisurewear brand that I work for. As a brand that celebrates the sea, we want to take responsibility for improving and protecting the coastline around us.
I look forward to seeing cleaner beaches, a reduction of single use plastic and an increased love and enjoyment of the sea in the people I meet as a rep.
