Great British Beach Clean

March 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

This year we have two objectives for our Great British Beach Clean

1) to comply with the aim in our Largo Communities Together Place Plan to keep our beaches pristine.
2) to feed the results of our Litter Collection into the Marine Conservation Society’s Database to influence National Policy.

We have 5 areas targeted for the 24th and you can sign up to input information to the data base and become a Citizen Scientist.
Calling on all volunteers to JOIN IN our first beach clean of the year – The Great British Spring Clean.
Last year, we shifted approximately a massive 2 tonnes of detritus off the beach. No mean feat! Let’s see what we can achieve together this time.

We have 5 muster points, so you can choose the most convenient to you or where you want to put in your efforts.
A: Silverburn car park
B: Lundin Golf Club car park
C: Temple car park
D: Dumbarnie Nature Reserve
E: Ruddons Point at Cocklemill Burn, arrived at through Elie Holiday Park.
Please email largobay@largocommunitiestogether.org.uk with your location of choice and the number of your party. We have a few litter pickers for younger volunteers – let us know if needed.
