Limekilns Pier Autumn Beach Clean
Join this beach clean to help us stop harmful litter from reaching the ocean and collect vital data that we can use to bring about positive change for our seas.
The CLP Nature Conservation Group are organising a number of beach cleans across Limekilns and Charlestown on Sunday 1st October. As well as removing as much litter from our beaches as possible, the main purpose of the event is to record all the items found within a 100m stretch of beach.
The 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 volunteers who can provide details on safety prior to commencing the clean. The Limekilns Pier beach clean will be lead by Kim.
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.
