Collywell Bay is a small bay between St Mary's and Seaton Sluice and according to the council it was a bit neglected when it came to beach cleans. The bay has some areas that are difficult to access so it's probably best suited to the able bodied. We would strongly recommend sturdy shoes/boots with grip as much of the bay has slippery rocks. We should be able to provide all the equipment but if you have gardening gloves, bring them along. Please book on-line, any queries please feel free to call on 07966 265085.

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.
