Chelmsford Star Co-op Shoeburyness East Beach: Big Beach Clean-up
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.
Come along and help us at our annual beach clean-up. We will be meeting across the road to the car park. There are toilets available, and I believe the closest train station to the beach is Shoeburyness Station.
We can provide hoops, bin liners and pickers but you are welcome to bring your own.
There may be approximately 100 of us but plenty of space on the beach so the plan would be that once we have all arrived, we break away in groups to find a space to work on.
My personal mobile number on the day for emergencies is Julie Birkumshaw 07957881475.

Could you please email me separately with the names of all your group of volunteers attending as soon as possible.
We look forward to seeing you :)
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.
