Great Dorset Beach Clean 2019

Litter Free Coast and Sea are back with the 30th annual Great Dorset Beach Clean over the weekend of April 27th and 28th April 2019.

Beach cleans will take place from Lyme Regis all the way along the coast to Friars Cliff, so there’ll be plenty to choose from.

It’s a fantastic event that makes a real difference to our beaches and people taking part carry out surveys of what’s found which helps us understand the top litter items found on our beaches. We then use that information to develop campaigns to try and reduce these items at source.

Last year over 500 volunteers turned out to clear 350 bags of rubbish from Dorset’s beaches. They collected everything from single-use items like plastic bottles and drinks cans, to historical clay pipes and fishing line that had been washed up onto the shoreline. Who knows what we’ll unearth this year!

Litter Free Coast & Sea Need YOU!

The event plays a vital role in protecting and improving the appearance of Dorset’s beaches and we need every pair of hands available on the day.

If you are interested in running a beach clean over the weekend of the 27 & 28 April or would like to lend a hand on the day, then please get in touch today. We’d love to hear from you.
