The SAS Autumn Beach Clean at Croyde

Wow! Massive thanks to everyone who came to help clean up Croyde Beach this weekend!

SAS rep Claire Moodie and I were blown away (almost literally) by the energy and enthusiasm at the Croyde Beach Clean on Saturday, and despite strong winds we had well over 100 volunteers (including some who drove 4 hours to be there!) plus local clubs and the awesome Sunset Sons come along and get stuck in.

We pulled in between 30 & 40 large black sacks full of general marine litter including lots of throw away plastics, cans, bottles and bags plus 5 super sacks full of ghost fishing gear.

Sunset Sons were out on the beach for hours and worked hard pulling in loads of litter, and straight afterwards they headed straight to Blue Groove and performed a fantastic ‘Secret Sessions’ gig for all the volunteers. It was awesome and loads of people came up to watch – massive thanks to them for all their hard work and brilliant live music. Please come back soon!

With Sunset Sons

Ruda’s new Beach Ranger Rose Roberts was wonderful, manning the tractor and trailer and running beach sweeps, loading up heavy sacks of rubbish and bringing them back up the beach saving people’s tired muscles! She pitched in and helped us handing out bags and gloves too and provided hot drinks for all beach cleaners – Rose, you’re a marvel! Thanks too go to Jo from WAP who traveled down from London to be involved and also to Natalie at Clean Marine for the awesome badges!

All in all it was a day full of good people doing good things, and having fun doing it. We have lots of photos on their way and we’ll share them as soon as we can, and when the results from beach cleans around the country come in we’ll share them too.

Thanks to SAS for another great beach clean series!

Final Call for all Croyde Beach Cleaners!

This is your final reminder to get down to Croyde beach this Saturday 18th October to take part in what we hope will be one of the country’s biggest cleans on the SAS Autumn Beach Clean Series.

Parkdean’s Beach Ranger Rose Roberts spends a lot of time looking after the beach and thinks the beach clean crew will be busy on Saturday. “The recent bad weather means there’s more litter than usual on the beach at the moment,” she explains. “Storms at this time of year often dredge up seaweed and dump it on the beach and unfortunately it brings lots of tangled up marine litter with it. The beach clean couldn’t have come at a better time.”
