Do you want to get involved with helping to protect Largo Bay?

This group is led by the community of Largo Bay. Our top priority has been protecting our coast.

One of our first things was organizing a Community Sea Day in 2022 to coincide with World Oceans Day and include a litter pick and a film screening with local filmmakers.People in the area connect with the beach in so many ways from walking to sailing to birdwatching to swimming to rockpooling, and we have really been riding the wave of that love and enthusiasm.

Early on, we also joined Restoration Forth, a national seagrass project, and the Coastal Communities Network. It connects us to shoreline-related organizations across Scotland and offers so much advice and support.

School-based work has allowed us to connect with young people.

A community-led biodiversity monitoring project is starting, and we clean beaches every month.

The group has continued to work with existing clean up groups; The Fife Coast and Countryside Trust; local primary schools and develop links across the community and with other Coastal Communities in Scotland. They have also worked on a national art project called The 100 Species. This connects more people with knowledge of what's on our shores and in our oceans.

Friends of Largo Bay also lead monthly maintenance cleans along Largo Bay too. Local businesses have provided discounts on food and drinks to those who roll up their sleeves; and farmers and landowners have provided machinery and practical help.

We also hope to influence better access to the beach for those with disabilities and have been looking at improving those outcomes.

The next dates are

  • 18th of June, Fathers Day Pick at Lower Largo 10am-12pm
  • 20th of July Midsummer Pick at Massy Braes 10am-12pm
  • 27th of August 2pm-4pm at Silverburn Park.

Amanda Root has been doing a public free workshop series funded by the Crown Estate to examine the feasibility of seaweed farming off Fife's coast - check out www.fifeseaweedfarm.co.uk for more info.

As you can see there are a lot of exciting projects coming up, so we're growing the Friends of Largo Bay group.
