Great British Beach Clean at Pett Level
22nd September 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFREE
More than just a beach clean – a very sociable event opening eyes to the stories behind the rubbish on our beaches.
This beach was first surveyed in 2005, and to help discover the source of much of the rubbish on the beach we “pick up, identify, record, bag, bin or recycle”. The information goes to a national database where the MCS can lobby Government to help reduce marine pollution (plastic bag tax, wet wipe labelling etc).
For those who wish to take part in a beach clean only, there will be a large stretch of the beach available! But Strandliners encourage everyone to look out for transatlantic rubbish, container spill remains and local pollution such as Biobeads (identification sheets will be available).
Equipment will be available but please wear sturdy footwear and be prepared for rain, sun, wind etc!
Meet up on the sea wall between the Smuggler Pub and the Pett Level Independent Rescue Boat, Pett Level Rd, TN35 4EH.
There’s parking along the side of the Pett Road. Toilets are a 5 minute walk. If coming by bus the 101 Hastings/Rye bus stops at the Smuggler Pub. This beach is shingle but at low tide the remains of a submerged forest can be seen, and further along the coast fulmar nest and dinosaur footprints are found in the rocks (at low tide).
