Calling all ‘beach-loving Brightonians’, it’s that time of year again.
Creative Bloom’s environmental campaign arm Zero Waste Brighton is back for Surfers Against Sewage’s Autumn Beach Clean Series 2016.
And this year, we’re pulling out all the stops. We’ve joined forces with the ONCA Centre for Arts & Ecology, The Deans GRAB Volunteers and the English Disco Lovers to make this the biggest, boldest and brightest Beach Clean in Brighton ever!
As you know, the Autumn Beach Clean Series is one of the biggest single weeks of beach clean activities in Europe. Last year’s Brighton and Hove local clean saw a whopping 150kg of discarded waste collected from our beloved beach. Whilst we are all incredibly proud of this, you’ll agree that when it comes to marine litter the battle has only just begun!
This year we are taking on 5 of Sussex’s local beaches: we’ll be putting our hands to work on the King Alfred Leisure Centre’s beach in Hove, Basin Road’s Beach in Southwick, Smuggler’s Rest Beach in Telscombe, Rottingdean Beach in Rottingdean and King’s Esplanade Beach in Brighton & Hove. So, if you’re local to any of these beaches, roll up your sleeves and join us for the fun times and a dance with the English Disco Lovers!
This is a free family beach-cleaning event for all ages, with plenty of activities for children and adults alike. We’ll provide you with all the tools you need to make your beach beautiful again!
