We look forward to seeing you at our first MCS survey of the year. Thank you for coming along to help.

We will survey 100m of the beach collecting and recording type and number of bits of rubbish. We will then go on and clean the rest of the beach.

Please bring: warm/water proof layers, study shoes ( boots trainers) , warm drink/water, protective gloves and litter picker if you have them but we have plenty.

Please listen carefully to the H and S talk at the start

Childre under 16yrs must be accompanied and remain the responsibility of their guardian throughout.

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.
