Join us on 6th July at Brightlingsea Paddling Pool Beach to help keep plastic out of the ocean AND collect material for the Pirates & Mermaids art workshop event at the Christine Storey Gallery on the following Saturday 13th July!

The Beach clean will involve a survey and clean-up of the beach surrounding the paddling pool, plus clean-up of the other beach sections towards the ‘railway line’ and Sailing Club if we have enough volunteers.

Please wear sturdy footwear. Bring sunglasses, hats, water, sunscreen, warm clothing depending on the weather. Please also bring re-usable strong protective gloves and litter pick tools if possible, some will be available. Re-usable collecting bags will be provided and litter will be sorted into recyclable/non-recyclable waste to get the most benefit from the beach clean. Material for the art workshop will be washed before using.

We will work in pairs as a minimum (pair up on the day if you are coming as an individual). Children under 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult and have a completed Parental Consent form (supplied on the day). Toilets are within 50 metres of meeting point. Public transport and disabled parking is also close by. Dogs are not allowed on this beach at this time of year.

Tide times on 06/07/19: Low tide: approx. 08:18 (0.7m); high tide: approx 14:45 (5.2m).

Briefing will start at 8:30am so please arrive promptly to avoid missing important information!

We really appreciate the time and effort donated by all volunteers and look forward to seeing you on the 6th!
