With the surf season knocking on our doors it’s time to get the beaches ready for bikini season and out of their winter slump! Best practiced with the SAS Beach Cleaning events, that are gearing up for another round from March 22nd -24th 2013!
We called on coastal communities to get involved with the SAS Big Spring Beach Clean on 22nd, 23rd & 24th March to help tackle the marine litter crisis hitting UK shores and we have not been disappointed. We are asking beach lovers to volunteer to nominate their favourite beaches and to organise their own SAS Big Spring Beach Clean as SAS volunteers.
We are proud to announce that we already have over 45 beach cleans confirmed all over the UK, from the Orkney Isles to the Isle of Wight! But as ever we think we can do better, so if you would like to volunteer to lead a Big Spring Beach Clean at your favourite beach please get in touch at [email protected] by the 22nd of February.
With so many Big Spring Beach Cleans there is sure to be an event near you, we are now calling for communities to join our fantastic Lead Organisers and SAS Reps over the weekend of the 22nd, 23rd and 24th of March. Find your nearest Big Spring Beach Clean below and we’ll see you on the beach! (NB: Beach Cleans will run between 11am and 2pm, exact timings will be posted soon).
