Watchet Great British Beach Clean


Date: 25th Sept 2022 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Come along and help with a mass litter pick of West Street Beach in Watchet. This is part of the Marine Conservation Society's Great British Beach Clean and is being run in conjunction with Plastic Free Watchet and Plastic Free Communities in West Somerset. We will be conducting a detailed survey of different types of litter on a small stretch of West Street Beach (counting and weighing) to add to the MCS national database as well as carrying out a general beach clean and litter pick in and around Watchet. This event is also a great chance to find out about, share ideas and get involved in the Watchet and 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.
