Additional information: 

The beach clean will comprise of a beach litter survey and beach clean in order to better understand what debris is being washed up/left on our beaches and how we can tackle it with future campaigns/resources.
The survey forms will be available on the day and will help to categorise the litter.

There will also be a Nurdle Hunt in association with The Great Nurdle Hunt co-ordinated by FIDRA. The aim of this is to look out for and collect small, discarded plastic pellets used by the plastics industry and record information on their presence/absence and abundance.
If you can please bring an empty jam jar with you for collection of the nurdles.

All equipment (including litter pickers, bags and gloves), guidance and information will be given on the day- no prior knowledge is essential but please do have a look at the links for background details.

For any queries regarding the event please contact Kate Whitton on kate.whitton@mcsuk.org or phone 07772 218447.
Please do register for the event online as I need to have an idea of numbers so there is enough equipment for everyone.

It's advisable to wear sturdy footwear and dress for the weather.

Most of all....let's have fun cleaning our beautiful beach!
