Beach & River Clean-ups

Helping to clean up rubbish from one of our beautiful beaches or rivers is a mucky job, as there are a few people who don’t care about our environment and dump their rubbish… but it’s also fun by the water and some interesting things can be found!

Beach and river clean ups are held regularly and often community groups organise these themselves. You are welcome to ask us if there are events you can join in or if your group wants to organise a clean up - email for more information.
