Members of Lisburn Sub Aqua Club (LSAC) carried out a beach clean-up at Ballyhenry Bay near Portaferry on Saturday, February 3.

A crowd of divers from the club, which is based beside Lagan Valley LeisurePlex, gathered 18 bags of rubbish as well as barrels, boxes and other assorted materials.

LSAC also conducted a treasure hunt dive from the shore to Lee’s Wreck in a chilly Strangford Lough.

All the hungry divers were treated to a delicious barbecue afterwards.

Their efforts on the day raised the tidy sum of £160.53 for Portaferry RNLI.
