Spring is HERE! To celebrate, come and join the Marine Conservation Society for a beach clean on 15th April 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 (height barrier here: 2m). There is an alternative small car park further south: BS22 9UU, near the Priory School of Motoring, and another near the Commodore Hotel: BS22 9UZ.

There are loos in Sand Bay Car Park - please bring 20p to use them.

Meet on the beach adjacent to Sand Bay Car Park here:
