This is a challenging event, not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. The event will involve a 30-40 minute walk on shingle to get to our survey area. This will be followed by a 2-2.5 hour survey from our regular 100m stretch of beach. We will also pick up rubbish from outside the survey area. 

After a short break, we will walk back to the car park, taking the rubbish with us. 

There will be experienced members of Strandliners taking part, but are offering limited spaces to new volunteers. Due to the nature of the site, volunteers must be registered to take part. 

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.  This event would be a great experience for DofE students, but is not suitable for young children.

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. 

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