Help to make a change by joining a beach clean

The English Riviera countryside rangers were due to be leading a beach clean at Man Sands Beach as part of the Great British Beach Clean on Friday 14 September. However the rangers have decided, upon inspection of the beach, that it's looking really tidy at the moment and not in need of a beach clean. Sorry for any disappointment this may cause.

Beach cleaners assemble

Although the Man Sands beach clean is no longer going ahead, there are lots of other opportunities to get involved in the Great British Beach Clean, the biggest beach clean and survey in the UK. Across the South West the National Trust are leading beach cleans, which you can find out about below.

Beach cleans across the South West 

We look after miles of coastline and beaches across the South West, and rely on volunteers to help us clear the tons of litter that appears on the coast. Take a look and see if there's a beach clean near you for this weekend and beyond.
