We will assemble by the SWCP monument for a briefing before going down onto the beach to carry out our beach cleans. After the beach clean, the second half of the afternoon (from approx. 14.30) will include a guided rock pool ramble. This event is led by Somerset Wildlife Trust staff as part of our new Somerset's Brilliant Coast project. Booking is essential. If you have any queries contact Mark Ward on 07736 457620 or email mark.ward@somersetwildlife.org. We will have some litter pickers and a small supply of gloves, but please bring you own gloves if you have them(thick rubber or gardening gloves are ideal). Make sure you have appropriate outdoor clothing. We still plan to do the beach clean if it is rainy so have waterproofs with you. Wellington boots are suggested for the rocky shore ramble. There is (pay and display) parking along the esplanade.
