The green coats are in charge of taking families out onto the local beaches to explore the seaside and find out more about the wildlife that inhabits its shores. The redcoats chosen worked with their local wildlife trust to learn about the local wildlife and create some great beach activities for all the family. As a huge fan of Butlins I think that this is a great idea so I asked for the opportunity to interview one of the newly trained green coats.
I met up with the lovely Ellen, one of Bognors Green coats to ask her a few questions as I joined her and Greencoat Charlotte on the nature walk. Ellen is a redcoat that we have come to know over the last two years and it was great seeing her in her new role. She was so interested in what she talking about that you really felt the enthusiasm and you can see that enthusiasm spread through the group. With over 30 guests joining us, the two Greencoats handed out buckets and leaflets and took us to the beach to hunt for shells, interesting rocks and creatures.
The Internet here is not great so when I get back to somewhere with a decent connection I will load some more lovely photos but in the mean time why not download the great beach guide so you can have a look for yourself.
