Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) has once again teamed up with Barefoot wine for their nationwide beach clean-up tour this summer. The SAS team will visit 6 beaches around the UK and everyone’s welcome to help.
Whether you’re a part of the local community or you just fancy rolling up your sleeves and getting involved, SAS and Barefoot need your help make our British beaches ‘Barefoot Friendly’.
This year the SAS Barefoot Friendly Beach Cleaning Tour will be visiting:
• Newquay on 29th July
• Croyde on 30th July
• Bournemouth on 31st July
• Llangennith on 1st August
• Saltburn-by-Sea on 2nd August
• Brighton on 3rd August
The 2009 campaign builds on the successes of last year’s SAS Barefoot Friendly tour efforts where over 400 people took part to help remove over 1 tonne of litter from the British coastline.
Starting at 3pm, the afternoon clean-up sessions will kick off with a full introduction and briefing from the respected eco-campaigners at SAS. Each volunteer will then be given gloves and a rubbish bag and the marine litter-picking will commence. All volunteers need bring is suitable clothing for the weather.
The clean-up will be followed by a delicious, free BBQ on the beach for all volunteers from 5pm until 6pm organised by Barefoot. For those who want to stay on afterwards, volunteers, friends and family can enjoy an evening of fun surf quizzes and free Barefoot wine from 6.30pm.
