We have equipment available including pickers, trugs, small pots and bags. Please bring along gloves if you can. Heavy duty bags for disposal of fishing net is also desirable to bring but not essential. 

Volunteers needed to help with beach clean and assistance with sorting rubbish for disposal, as this is the hardest part of the beach clean. 

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.
