Estuary and Bantham beach events

FOR YOUR INFORMATION
I have received the following notice from the Outdoor swimming Society:-
We wanted to once again notify you of the Swoosh swimming event that will be taking place on the morning of Saturday 14th July 2018. Swimmers will be entering the water from 7.40am at Aveton Gifford and the last swimmers will be exiting the water at 10.15am at Bantham Beach. We are once again working very closely with Aveton Gifford Parish Council and the Bantham Estate on the event. We’ll be having another 6 swimmers fundraising again this year for the Aveton Gifford Community Swimming Pool.  BOAT USERS BE PARTICULARLY AWARE OF SWIMMERS, PLEASE!
Separately, The Tribal Clash on Bantham beach will take place on the w/e of 7th/8th July 2018.  Disruption of Bigbury traffic is unlikely but there will be lots going in Bantham!  The estuary should not be affected.

Upper estuary improvement by Bantham Estate

Following the purchase by the Bantham Estate of Little Marsh, on the bridge at Aveton Gifford, we are pleased to point out the significant clearance of boat ‘junk’ and potential pollutants of the upper estuary from around the foreshore.

The ACA continues to work with the Estate  towards achieving a common understanding of the future for the estuary; a future that will conserve and improve the unspoilt character of this beautiful idyll.
