SAS’s Nationwide Beach Cleaning Tour, Coming To A Beach Near You! SAS Beach Clean

Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) have teamed up with Barefoot Wine to launch a nationwide beach clean-up tour this summer. The week-long anti beach litter tour will encourage people to get down to their local beach and do their bit to make it clean and safe for all to enjoy.

The SAS Makes Beaches Barefoot Friendly tour stops at:

Porthtowan, Cornwall – 28th July
Porthcawl, Wales – 29th July
Bournemouth – 30th July
Brighton – 31st July
Cromer – 1st August
Tynemouth – 2nd August

Andy Cummins, campaign officer, SAS, said: “Marine litter is a huge problem on beaches all over the country and we are responsible for this marine litter in the marine environment. So this tour gives beach-lovers a great opportunity to make a real and very positive difference on your local beach! It’s really important that people take an interest, but it’s also really important that people have fun doing it. The beach cleans we organise are really enjoyable, educational and are a great way to bring local people from all walks of life together.”

Each beach clean will start at 2pm. The afternoon will kick off with a full introduction and briefing from the SAS campaigners. All volunteers will then be furnished with gloves and a rubbish bag and the beach clean will commence. All volunteers need bring is suitable clothing for the weather. (Under 16s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.)

The beach clean will be followed by a free beach BBQ for all volunteers! For those who want to stay on afterwards, volunteers, friends and family can enjoy an evening of surf quizzes and free Barefoot Wine at a nearby local watering hole.

A limited number of spaces are available for each clean-up so get in quick! To sign up, please {encode=”andy@sas.org.uk” title=”contact Andy at SAS”} .
