SUNDAY, 28 October – 10.30am-12.30pm (approx)
Friars Cliff Beach

The Great British Beach Clean

Here is some information, paraphrased from the Christchurch Times, 30 August:

It should take around two hours, and hopefully lots of people will take part. It forms part of the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) Beach Watch programme, which not only spruces up hundreds of beaches around the UK coast, but the volunteers also record the litter they find. It is this aspect that has really helped MCS change policy and behaviours over the last quarter of a century.

More details are on their website here. There are more at other local beaches, too.
