Teignbridge Leisure is looking for donations of unwanted buckets, spades, balls and beach toys to fill its seafront libraries in Teignmouth and at Dawlish Warren.

The popular beach toy libraries, which launched for the summer season this week, allow people to borrow equipment for their trip to the beach and then return the toys at the end of the day.

Beach play items can be left in the toy chests located by the pier on Teignmouth’s promenade and near the lifeguard station on Dawlish Warren beach.

Beach toy libraries reduce plastic waste by encouraging people to reuse items and enables families to access beach fun even if money is tight.
