Welcome to the Marine Conservation Society! 

On Saturday 29th April we will be heading to Hengistbury Head, Christchurch which is a beautiful stretch of sand backdropped by cliffs. We are aiming to clean and survey a section of the beach from the Hiker Cafe towards the western groyne.

There is a small fee for car parking. Please bring your own gloves and/or litter pickers and we'd recommend bringing an old re-usable carrier bag rather than using plastic bin bags. Wrap up warm! It's going to be chilly!

The Hiker Cafe have also very kindly offered to provide a free hot drink at their cafe after all your amazing efforts.

If you have any questions, please get in touch. See you then!

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. 

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