Sandy Cove, Kinmel Bay 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 event will include a one-hour litter survey and clean-up of a section of Kinmel Bay Beach. All equipment will be provided, but if you do have your own gloves for litter-picking, this is helpful. If not, we will have plenty to provide.
Dress for the British weather. This may include a waterproof jacket and layers to keep warm.
Beach stretch details
To access Kinmel Bay beach, you need to be able to step over a thigh-height barrier. There is no gateway or path onto the beach, as this part of the coast is suffering from coastal retreat, so to protect the movement of sand, the barriers are in place. Anyone who has mobility issues or those with small children might be unable to access the beach without assistance.
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.
