* Beach clean information *

We provide all the equipment you’ll need (litterpickers, bin bags, gloves, sometimes even biscuits!).  Boots or wellies are recommended.  Please dress according to the weather (raincoat, suncream, sunhat).  In St Bees we meet in the main beach car park, behind the lifeboat station.  In Whitehaven we meet at the top of the slipway near the parking machines on North Shore, behind Tesco.  Thanks to Copeland Borough Council for collecting the rubbish we find.
