Join us for a Friday morning on the beach, where we will be clearing litter pollution from our marine environment.

Plastic litter blights local community spaces, including our beaches. We know that 80% of marine litter comes from the land, and it can kill wildlife – on land small mammals get trapped in cans and plastic bottles, and at sea turtles eat plastic bags and marine birds ingest micro-plastics. Join us to help our local wildlife.

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.
