It was great to be back doing beach cleans in the Peninsula and even better that the sun was shining on the morning of Saturday 22nd May, after two days of storm weather! We had 8 volunteers for our first clean after a long break due to COVID restrictions, and our youngest cleaner was 4 years old. The team met at Treginnis Uchaf Farm for a safety briefing and issuing of kit, before heading down to Porthlysgi Bay.
A total of 8 big bags of rubbish was collected and we had a go at recording the type of rubbish to help the Marine Conservation Society with their work on preventing it getting in the sea in the first place! Huge thanks to Katy Fox for leading the event and for Ian Meopham of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority for arranging disposal of the rubbish.
More dates will be published soon and we aim to run at least one clean every 6 weeks.
