Registration for this event is helpful so the organiser knows how many volunteers to expect, but it is not essential.

The Beach clean will involve a survey and clean-up of a specified area next to the pier and clean-up of the other beach sections to the right of the pier.

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.

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. Toilets and cafes are within 50 metres of meeting point. Public transport and disabled parking is also close by. Dogs are not allowed on the beach at this time of the year. High tides: approx 03:30 and 15:50.

Briefing will start at 9am 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 21st September!
