Annual, National Great British Beach Clean

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

  • 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 and Display. If you’re late, just come to us on the beach. We usually start at the steps.

  • Capacity:

    15 volunteers - 1 spaces left

  • School friendly?

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear and bring gloves e.g. gardening gloves.

Children are welcome if accompanied by an adult. There are two toilets next to the beach café.

This is the annual, national beach clean which takes place around the coast during the same week. The survey information we collect will contribute to the MCS database and the 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.
