    Blast beach is located a little further South of Seaham and is Satnav friendly with a large car park. You can use the post code SR7 7PR and the road is signposted to 'Noses Point'. We will be meeting in the car park before heading down to the beach together.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering to help clean up Blast beach!

Litter pickers, binbags, rubber gloves, clipboards, survey sheets and pencils will all be provided.    Alternatively MCS now has an app that can be used to log the survey results.  Details of this will be included in your confirmation email, once you have signed up.

Please wear sturdy shoes as access to the beach is via a steep downwards slope, which can be a little slippery depending upon the conditions.

If you would like to join or have any questions, please contact me.  I will need to know numbers in advance in order to provide enough equipment for everyone, so it is essential that you book your spot. 

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.
