Join us for our first beach clean of 2018 at Sand Bay!

We'll be doing our usual beach clean and survey, recording what we find, and we'll give a 'brief' briefing before we start.

All equipment is provided (litter pickers, bags and gloves) but do bring something to eat and drink if you need to - in a reusable water bottle if you can!

Please share lifts where possible. The nearest car park is Sand Bay Car Park BS22 9UE and there is an alternative car park further south, near the Commodore Hotel: BS22 9UZ. There are loos in Sand Bay Car Park - it's 20p to use them.

See you on the beach!
