Great British Beach Clean (3rd weekend in Sep)
Date & time: 
Sunday, 16 September 2018 - 11:30am - 3:00pm
Meeting location: 
We'll be working on both town shores in Oban Bay today so you’ll find us on either George Street from 11:30 (opposite WHSmiths / Chalmers) or later on the Esplanade (in front of the museum towards the Chocolate Shop and the Corran Halls).
Additional information: 

Come along and learn about the items arriving on shores in Oban Bay and other ways you can help to combat plastic pollution and turn the tide on marine litter!

Join us any time from 11:30 on George Street and later on the Esplanade—for the GBBC survey or just to help remove the items—two mins, ten, twenty or longer, whatever time you can spare. Why not pop down to see us after you’ve visited Motorfest in Station Square!

We'll be at Port Mor (Dunollie Castle beach) from 16:30 if you fancy an evening stroll and clean-up! You can always call to see where we are before coming down.

Please wear weather suitable clothing. Children and young people, please bring an adult.
All kit will be provided but if you have your own bucket and gloves please do bring them along.

Wherever possible items removed will be returned, repurposed or recycled through a beach plastics scheme (likely Terracycle).

For further information, please contact Janie on 07530 314 127

NB: Access to George St. beach is via the slip way, the Esplanade via steps and please note to get down to Port Mor it is necessary to climb a small wall and down a short ladder.
