Bag the Bruck
Some streets of London will have been cleaned for today's Marathon. The beaches of Orkney are being cleaned this weekend for the annual 'Bag the Bruck' campaign that is now in its 20th year. 'Bruck' is the Orcadian word for rubbish and by this evening some 500 volunteers will have combed 50 beaches in an effort to preserve the environment and to prevent damage to wildlife. The booklet Bag the Bruck is excellent and can be downloaded by just clicking. It's somewhat easier, but less satisfying, than picking.
