A company that supplies equipment and personnel to the oil, gas, petrochemical and renewables industries is holding a sponsored beach clean to celebrate 10 years of successful operations.

Oceanscan Limited, based at the OrbisEnergy Centre in Wilde Street, Lowestoft has teamed up with the Kirkley People's Forum to carry out a sponsored clean of the south beach - and they have decided to raise funds for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) in the process.

The Local Conversation in Kirkley initiative, run by Kirkley People's Forum, is a People's Health Trust project to support residents to take local action on issues that matter to them to improve their community.
