Newton Beach, Porthcawl beach clean: Marine Clean Cymru
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.
To celebrate the Great British Beach Clean and Marine Clean Cymru, help us and our friends at Marine Conservation Society keep Newton Beach in Porthcawl looking beautiful this September. We’ll also be recording what we find using the Marine Conservation Society’s litter survey, which will help us collect vital evidence in our fight against marine pollution.
All participants must register for the event here on Marine Conservation Society’s website.
Please bring along your own litter picking kit, or you can borrow equipment on the day as everything will be provided. There will also be a safety briefing at the start of the clean-up. Please bring your own gardening gloves, sensible shoes and wear weather appropriate clothing.
You’ll notice that we’ve added a what3words address to the event information above. This will help you find the exact meeting point for the clean-up. Just go to www.what3words.com and enter the unique three-word combination.

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.
