Join us for the Great Dorset Beach Clean (15th-23rd April countywide). 

All equipment is provided but do bring along gloves and pickers if you have them. We will be recording the rubbish we collect. 

The beach is rocky, so suitable footwear is needed. 

There are three car parks here, but unfortunately we do not own them so you will need to pay for parking. Cash/card or App payment for car parks.

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.
