COMBAT BLUE MONDAY WITH A BEACH CLEAN.

Celebrating our blue spaces we will enjoy an afternoon cleaning up Troon beach and gathering some data on the litter found. Open to all ages.

Parking available at St Meddan's car park directly behind the toilet block - https://w3w.co/credit.masks.sadly 

Please meet at 1.15pm for a full safety briefing. 

All resources provided, dress for the weather with waterproofs, layers and sturdy shoes. A bottle of water and any snacks are useful. We should be cleaning the beach for around one hour, conducting a simple litter survey as we go along. 

Please do not attend if you are feeling unwell in any way or have tested positive for COVID-19. A lateral flow test before arriving is always recommended.

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.
