Annual Great British Beach Clean

Kathryn McAdam

Join this beach clean to help us stop harmful litter from reaching the ocean and collect vital data that we can use to bring about positive change for our seas.

  • Beach stretch:

    Half Moon Bay 2

  • Date and time:

    23 Sep 2023, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

  • Meeting point:

    Please meet in the car park opposite the beach café. This is Pay & Display. If you’re late, just come to us on the beach. We usually start at the steps.

  • Capacity:

    15 volunteers - 6 spaces left

  • School friendly?

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear and bring gloves e.g. gardening gloves. Litter pickers will be available if you prefer to use one.

Children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. Two toilets are available next to the beach café.

This is the national, annual beach clean which takes place all around the coast over the same week. The survey we take will add to the MCS database and the National picture of littering around our coastline.

Also worth knowing…

What to bring: We’d recommend you pack a rucksack with a few essentials like sunscreen, waterproofs, hand sanitiser, and perhaps some snacks and a drink (in a reusable bottle, of course).

What to wear: If you're picking up litter with your hands it's worth wearing a strong pair of gloves - like gardening gloves - just to make sure you're protected. Sturdy shoes are a must for protection too.

Under 16s: To comply with our insurance, volunteers under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult who will be asked to sign a parental / guardian consent form on the day by the beach clean organiser.
