Meet at carpark (EH15 1DU), event leaders will be in high vis jackets however volunteers do not need to wear these if they do not wish to or do not have access to them. Volunteers should bring suitable clothing and footwear (weather depending) Water and cereal bars will be provided however you are welcome to bring your own snacks and drinks. Black bin bags and large powder-free vinyl gloves will be provided, feel free to bring your own! (litter pickers not provided) This is a self funded project with all donations going to the Marine Conservation Society.

Also worth knowing…

What to bring: We’d recommend you pack a rucksack with a few essentials like sunscreen, waterproofs, hand sanitiser, and perhaps some snacks and a drink (in a reusable bottle, of course).

What to wear: If you're picking up litter with your hands it's worth wearing a strong pair of gloves - like gardening gloves - just to make sure you're protected. Sturdy shoes are a must for protection too.

Under 16s: To comply with our insurance, volunteers under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult who will be asked to sign a parental / guardian consent form on the day by the beach clean organiser.
