The CLP Nature Conservation Group are organising a number of beach cleans across Limekilns and Charlestown on Sunday 3rd March to coincide with the Fife Climate Festival. As well as removing litter from our beaches, the aim of this event it to raise awareness and take climate action.

The beach cleans will include recording of items found, to be included in the MCS data collection records for 2024. Data recorded is hugely important as it helps the MCS track litter back to source and enables campaigns for change.

Each beach clean will be lead and supervised by local trained volunteers who can provide details on safety prior to commencing the clean.

We have some equipment and will provide rubbish bags. Please bring our own gloves and check the weather forecast in case you need to wear a waterproof!

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. 

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