Southsea
Status: 
Confirmed
Survey type: 
Beachwatch (year round)
Date & time: 
Saturday, 2 November 2019 - 10:00am - 12:00pm
Meeting location: 
Meet near the Coffee Cup, Eastney Esplanade, Portsmouth PO4 9GE
Additional information: 

Everyone is very welcome! Please note that dogs ARE allowed on the beach from October to May, so please bring your beloved dogs along to help out!

How it works:
* The first 20 volunteers will be asked to carry out the litter survey.
* Listen to the mini briefing.
* Borrow bags, litter pickers or gloves. (If you can bring your own that would be very helpful)
* Get cleaning!

If you can't make it for 10am, feel free to join us anytime before 11:15 as Colas collect the bags at 12.

Just a few words about health & safety:
* Always use gloves or the pickers to pick up rubbish.
* Walk around the pier rather than under it.
* Ask a coordinator to pick up any needles for you (it's rare that we find any).
* Cover up any dog poo with stones rather than try to pick it up.
* Avoid walking on the big rocks by the Pyramids as they may be slippery.
* Mind the water's edge.
* Don't touch any washed-up jellyfish with your bare hands.
* If we're lucky to have a sunny day, wear suncream!

We'd like to reduce the number of big bags we use, so if you want to, bring a bucket/ reusable sturdy bag and at the end we'll empty it into our white bags.
