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.

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.

NEW YEAR’S DAY TIDAL ROAD CLEAN UP

Our ever popular  clean up will be held from 2-3pm on Sunday 1st January 2017– weather permitting.  Feel free to bring your friends and guests to help out.  We’ll meet at both ‘Timbers’ car park (Aveton Gifford) and the Milburn Orchard car park (at the Bigbury end of the Tidal Road) with the two groups planning to meet in the middle!

Please bring any old sacks, etc. to collect the rubbish and follow our  safety guidelines  at http://auneconservation.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/ACA-BEACH-CLEANS3.pdf

Tidal Road clean-up: Sunday 10th May , 1500-1600: 2015

Tha ACA will be leading a clean up of the Tidal Road between Aveton Gifford and Bigbury on Sunday 10th May 2015 1500-1600.   Low water will be around 1630.  This operation will be a contribution towards the Marine Conservation Society’s Big Beach Clean.  It’s always a fun social occasion and you never know what interesting and potentially useful junk you might find!

We shall be working from the Timbers and Milburn Orchard car parks at both ends of the road, so please gather there.  Wear suitable clothing and bring gloves and any available collecting bags, please.

All volunteers must adhere to the safety guidelines described in the following link – http://auneconservation.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/ACA-BEACH-CLEANS3.pdf
