Minehead Beach - Marine Conservation Society - Great British Beach Clean


Date: 24th Sept 2022 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Come along and help with a mass litter pick of Minehead Beach. This is part of the Marine Conservation Society's Great British Beach Clean and is being run in conjunction with the Beach Hotel in Minehead, Litter Free Coast and Sea - Somerset and Plastic Free Communities in West Somerset. We will be conducting a detailed survey of different types of litter on a small stretch of beach (counting and weighing) to add to the MCS national database as well as carrying out a general beach clean. This event is also a great chance to find out about, share ideas and get involved in the West Somerset Plastic Free Communities campaigns. We will provide litter pickers and sacks for collecting debris. We recommend that volunteers bring a rucksack with a few essentials like sunscreen, waterproofs and perhaps some snacks and a drink. We also advise volunteers to bring a strong pair of gloves for protection when they are picking up litter. Under 16s: To comply with our insurance, volunteers under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult who will be asked to sign a parental / guardian consent form on the day by the beach clean organiser.  Please book a place on the Marine Conservation Society website: (see below for link) or email More information:
