Dunstaffnage Back Beach #2 (Dunbeg PS) - Beachwatch event 17 Sep 2018

Information regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Small, local, private, social distancing beach cleans

Now that rules across the UK allow for more time to be spent outside, we are happy for volunteers to run beach cleans and litter surveys again – but only as small, local and private events, following the simple rules below:

  1. Always follow the government, and local council rules, where you are
  2. A private event with group numbers that follow your government advice, with social distancing measures in place
  3. On distance to travel, please always follow the government, and local council rules, where you are
  4. Book these as private, closed events to avoid clashes with other beach cleans
  5. Update your risk assessment in accordance to our new safety guidelines
  6. Stay 2m apart from people other than your household
  7. Use gloves, litter pickers (if you have them) and wash your hands

To help we have updated all our resources including the health and safety guidelines and Q&A. Please do have a look at these and review the government advice before you start.

If you’ve never run a beach clean or litter survey before we’re happy to help you get started. Please give our team a call on 01989 567807 or email us at Beachwatch@mcsuk.org

This is a closed event for the P6/7 class of Dunbeg Primary School
Additional information: 

THIS IS A PRIVATE EVENT for the school group only. The general public cannot attend at this time.

The P 6/7s from Dunbeg Primary School are heading out with school staff and Footprint Alba to their local shore to join in the Great British Beach Clean 2018.

Dunbeg School are veteran GBB Cleaners and are pleased to be joining in again this year covering both survey lines on Dunstaffnage Back Beach near SAMS.

We can help to combat plastic pollution in many ways at home and when we shop as well as encouraging others to reduce their plastic, be more sustainable and to dispose of waste responsibly.

"Picking up three" is a great sentiment and we all have time to do that! Imagine if everyone in Scotland picked up three pieces each day (although we all wish we didn't have to....) ......how many less pieces of waste would there be at the end of one week....how many less pieces at risk of entering our oceans? You can ask Dunbeg P6 / 7s :0)

If you would like to join in the Great British Beach Clean or Beachwatch elsewhere, there are events all over Argyll and Bute and elsewhere in the country throughout the year.
Please have a look at the tab for ‘Beach clean events’ at the top of the page and search under County for Argyll.

Thank you
