Please join me. If you've come beachcombing with me you know we always clean up the beach when we're treasure hunting. We will survey a 100 metre stretch of beach recording every item of litter we find. This data is collected, collated and analysed by MCS and shared across the world.

Adults and children welcome. Wrap up warm!

Do I need to bring anything? If you would like to wear gloves please bring some. Gardening gloves are ideal. I no longer provide single-use plastic gloves.

What if it's horrible weather? The weather can be very changeable but the beach clean will go ahead unless it's torrential rain or high winds make the beach dangerous.

Is there parking? The closest car park is Manor Terrace. Martello Park South car park is also a short walk away. These are both pay & display car parks, charging £1-50 for up to two hours parking and £3 for up to four hours parking. It’s not a problem if you want to leave a little earlier to avoid the higher parking charge.

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. 

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