Join us for a very special family-friendly series of three MCS beach cleans & litter surveys. We will be joined by the current Miss Wales Dreams and Miss Mermaid 2019, and her group of fellow mermaids, Dwr Tails, to help us clean up the beach and keep the ocean free from pollution! 

Once completing the beach clean and litter survey, children will be handed a piece of mermaid treasure each, which they can exchange with the mermaids for photos. 

We hope you can join us for this fun, magical and free summer holidays event series! See you there.

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. 

11 spaces remaining - join us on the beach whilst there’s still spaces!
