Additional information: 

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A PRIVATE EVENT. No members of the general public can attend at this time..

The P 6/7s from Tobermory School are heading out with Ms Bidwell to the local shore to join in the Great British Beach Clean 2018.

We can help to combat plastic pollution in many ways at home and when we shop as well as encouraging others to reduce their plastic, be more sustainable and to dispose of waste responsibly.

"Picking up three" is a great sentiment and we all have time to do that! Imagine if everyone in Scotland picked up three pieces each day (although we all wish we didn't have to....) ......how many less pieces of waste would there be at the end of one week....how many less pieces at risk of entering our oceans? You can ask Tobermory P6 / 7s :0)

If you would like to join in the Great British Beach Clean or Beachwatch elsewhere, there are events all over Argyll and Bute and elsewhere in the country throughout the year.
Please have a look at the tab for ‘Beach clean events’ at the top of the page and search under County for Argyll.

On Mull on Friday 14th - why not join Mull-Adopt-a-Beach on the shores of Loch Buie at Laggan Sands 12:30-15:00 (please see this website under tab ‘Beach Clean Events’ and search Beach Name: Laggan Sands)
