Adnams Spring 2014 Beach Clean

By Benedict Orchard, also posted in News on

Adnams Beach Cleaners 2013I know it seems a distant memory but sitting on Southwold beach in the gleaming sun is absolutely lovely. So, in the run up to all that sunshine and warmth arriving we are planning our next beach clean to prepare the beach for all its visitors. Saturday 29th March 2014 will see the first of our beach cleans this year and we would love you to come and join in! There’s even a free pint of Adnams (or a soft drink) afterwards at The Harbour Inn for all those who take part. We want to ensure everyone’s visit to Southwold is as enjoyable as possible so we host beach cleans on our local patch throughout the year. In the spring, just as with your house, we like to call it a ‘spring clean’ in order to get rid of the gloomy winter presence of litter washed up or left behind since our last clean. Adnams has a great affinity with our coast. It is right on our door-step and provides lots of inspiration for our products, and its also where many of us have a lot of fun. Adnams beach clean in progressWe are committed to caring for the environment in which we operate, and in order to maintain the wonderful relationship we have with it we give a little back by protecting some of our best-loved marine wildlife that come under threat from the waste and litter in our seas. Hundreds of species of wildlife will accidentally eat or become entangled in litter and, in addition, litter on our beaches is hazardous to people and costs millions to clear up. This is the 11th year we are carrying out beach cleans on our 1 km stretch of adopted beach, between Gunhill and the Harbour in Southwold. It is a really big help towards tackling beach litter and pollution and we would love you to come along and help us give back to the local community while being part of something much bigger. So, please join us on Saturday 29th March 2014, meeting at 10am in The Swan Hotel, where there will be a quick briefing and issuing of equipment before heading down to Gun Hill to begin our clean. If you would like to come along please send me an e-mail to book your place. I will be sending out instructions for the day nearer to the time.
