New Year 2019 – Tidal Road clean up

For various reasons (mostly poor weather) it’s been some time since our last clean up around the Tidal Road but I am currently planning another for Sunday 6th January 2019 at 11.00am to coincide with Low Water.  I hope you will be able to come along and join in.  Please tell your friends or, better still, bring them along.
We usually have one group starting from Timbers car park  at AG to work downstream towards the stakes at Milburn Orchard and another starting from the Milburn Orchard car park, working back to AG.     Subsequently, a congenial meeting of the two teams in the Fisherman’s Rest would be a good way to start the afternoon.
I’ll be issuing further details nearer the time but please mark this date in your diary.

TIDAL ROAD CLEAN UP – 2.00pm, Sunday 4th March 2018

For various reasons it’s been some time since our last clean up around the Tidal Road but I am currently planning another for Sunday 4th March at 2.00pm to coincide with Low Water.  I hope you will be able to come along and join in.  Please tell your friends or, better still, bring them along.
We usually have one group starting from Timbers car park  at AG to work downstream towards the stakes at Milburn Orchard and another starting from the Milburn Orchard car park to work towards the sea.
Giving credit where it is due, it is worth noting that these days most of the foreshore rubbish on land owned by the Bantham Estate is cleaned up by estate staff on a regular basis but, inevitably, a lot of other rubbish either gets carried further up the estuary on high tides or is dumped upstream in the first place.
I’ll be issuing further details nearer the time but please mark this date in your diary.

BEACH CLEAN: Bigbury-on-Sea

If you’d like to help keep the beaches around the estuary free of  rubbish, you can come along on Saturday 30th September at 10.00am for a 1 – hour beach clean.  The event is being organised by Amanda Keetley from ‘Less Plastic’ in association with ‘Surfers against Sewage’ and is being supported by Venus cafe, who will be providing free tea/coffee for volunteers (please BYO reusable mug!).

Meet on the beach below the free (surfers) car park, at the bottom of Folly Hill at 10.00am.   HW will be around 1350.  Please come suitably attired and observe our usual safety precautions (see guidelines at http://auneconservation.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/ACA-BEACH-CLEANS3.pdf).  Gloves and bags will be provided.

Here is the link on Amanda’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/319088615222660

I hope to see you there!
