For the last few years we have participated in the Marine Conservation Society’s (MCS) Beachwatch national campaign to monitor what rubbish is on our beaches on the weekend of 17/18th September. This year we shall be doing the same on Saturday 17th September at 10.00am on Cockleridge, Bigbury on Sea, opposite Bantham, under the direction of Maya Plass (http://www.mayaplass.com).
On Sunday 18th September, Maya will be participating in the Perranporth Triathlon as a fundraising opportunity for the Marine Conservation Society. Maya says “It seemed to be such a good match that the triathlon took place the same weekend as the national Beachwatch marine litter campaign. I hope it will be a valuable opportunity to raise awareness about marine litter and also funds for the work of the www.mcsuk.org.”

Interestingly, most of our local beaches came out well in the latest MCS survey of beach quality. Click on the following link for details:-
