Above, 'Davy Jones' is trying to attract your attention. He asks you to correctly dispose of your gloves and other nautical litter.

During the recent slipway extension, the small amount of mud excavated contained 100+ rubber gloves. These gloves are used mainly by fishermen and sometimes by yachtsmen. The mud also had plastic, glass and metal; some was obviously historical but I'm sure we can all try harder in future to please 'Davy Jones'.
