Newgale Beach Wombles join EcoDewi!

The Newgale Beach Wombles have been running beach cleans at Newgale, one of Pembrokeshire’s most popular beaches, since 2015. For the last 7 years, the group has been led by the amazing ‘Nimi’ supported by Paul & Tim. Sadly, towards the end of 2021 Nimi announced that she was having to step down from leading things due to other priorities. With no-one else stepping forwards, the future looked bleak.

However, not wanting to see the great work of the Wombles come to an end, EcoDewi offered to help out, alongside its other work to protect the marine environment along the St Davids Peninsula coastline. So, in December 2021 the Newgale Beach Wombles formally became part of EcoDewi.

EcoDewi is really excited to be helping to look after another beach area, helping to reduce litter and protect the marine environment locally. And, of course it’s great to work with an amazing existing group of passionate beach cleaners! We really hope that in due course some Newgale locals feel keen to help lead the group or at least help out with organising events.

Dates for future beach cleans will be announced on the Newgale Beach Wombles and the EcoDewi Facebook pages. Help spreading the word would be really appreciated. To contact EcoDewi about beach cleans, please email Katy at beachcleans@ecodewi.org.uk
