What to do on arrival -
1. Look out for beach clean flags
2. Under 16s must be accompanied by a parent/guardian and will be asked to fill in a consent form.
2. Photos - it is great to take these to spread the word about beach cleans. I'll ask you to sign a form to say you are happy/not happy for these to be taken.

Once we've got through the above we'll be doing a beach clean and survey, recording what we find - there will be a safety briefing before we start.

All equipment is provided (litter pickers, bags and gloves) but bring something to eat and drink if you need to. Also please don't forget to wear sturdy shoes.

Toilets - the nearest loos are a few minutes walk from the beach at the boat yard (20p).

Please note - to all those registered for the beach clean before Friday 14th at 2pm, I've emailed you about the event, please check your spam and junk folders if you have not received an email in your inbox. If you have not received an email not to worry, all the info you need it right here on this event page.

Any questions and please get in touch. See you on the beach on Sunday!

Best wishes,
Harriet.
