We will update you on weather as we go on Facebook and Instagram but ask that you please wear suitable clothing/shoes for this event. 


Some equipment will be provided (re-usable SAS bags, some pickers and some hoops) but we please ask that you bring your own if possible. 🙏🏼 


12 volunteers are then invited to

Treats Café for a mid-pick picnic so please RSVP by 30th May 2023. (Please bring your own reusable cup!) ☕☕


Thank you and we can't wait to see you all! 🚯🏖️🥳⛱️🚯

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.
