Additional information: 

After such a great success at Ayrmer Cove back in September, where we managed to remove over 1000 pieces of litter from the sand and seaweed, it's now time to see what the winter swells have deposited on our shores.

This month the plan is to travel out to Westcombe beach, near Kingston, on Saturday 24th November. The tides are perfect with a spring low at midday. We will meet at 11am at the end of the dead-end road parking spot (please be aware that the road has many potholes so drive with caution but it is possible to get to the end, and lift share if possible). After a quick briefing we’ll walk down to the beach as a group descending for approximately 1km along a coastal footpath, which is sadly not considered suitable for wheelchair users.

Please bring clothing appropriate for the weather, robust gloves (e.g. gardening gloves) and adequate footwear. There are no facilities at this beach, so bring a snack and refreshments.

Children are very much welcome but must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

If you fancy coming along it would be great to see you. If you could send an email (davidmoir87@gmail.com) to let me know you are interested that would be greatly appreciated.

Hopefully see you on Saturday,

Dave
