Adnams Beach Clean

By Will, also posted in News on

We've been cleaning Southwold beach at least three times a year since 2003, and although we've lost count along the way, as we missed a couple and then added in a few more, we reckon we have done over 50!

As part of our regular beach clean programme, now 15 years old, some of our members of staff plus a group of super volunteers, help to spruce up Southwold beach.

Our beach cleans help provide data to Marine Conservation Society who hold statistics on beach litter levels across the UK. Each Beach Clean we do, we collect data on the items found on a 100m stretch of Southwold Beach. This data contributes to the Marine Conservation Society's Beach Watch Survey which records the type and quantity of litter found across the UK.

We've put together our own chart looking at the amount of litter we've been finding since 2013 (the blue line indicates the number of pieces per volunteer/ per 100m). The general trend for Southwold is looking good, but it could be that more and more people are picking up litter as part of their daily routine. However, a downward-trend is definitely positive.

*Following Government guidelines and advice from the Marine Conservation Society we have taken the decision to postpone our usual National Beach Clean in September.
Some of the team here at Adnams are continuing the great work daily and we intend to carry on cleaning on an informal basis – because its important to us and just like you we want to make a difference.  

However the Marine Conservation Society need more organisers than ever before – because mass participation events are not possible this year they are asking people to organise small private cleans with friends, family and ‘bubbles’ in line with government guidance. Do not worry if you can not get to a beach as you can still get involved with Source to Sea #Litterquest.

 This year the National Beach Clean Weekend has been extended to a full week to allow as many small groups as possible to get involved, it will run from 18th to 25th September.

 As soon as we have more clarity on when we can get together again we will be in contact to ask for your continued support of this great event and we will look forward to seeing you the next time we can get together
