As part of our Great British Beach Clean week, please join us for a lunchtime litter pick at Southend on Sea! 

All the data you gather on this clean will go towards making our seas cleaner, healthier and better protected. 

All ages and abilities (and packed lunches!) welcome. 

Please wear suitable footwear and dress for the British summertime! Equipment will be provided

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.
