location - the area between the Coffee Cup and the Eastney swimming baths

As the fish and chip shop on the pier is closed, I'm afraid there will be no discounted food!

Big Weekend 2012 Returns

In total 29 volunteers collected 4014 items of litter from the 300 metre stretch between South Parade Pier and the Pyramids. The amount of litter found was the most of any of the six years for which records are available; it is also a record per head. The beach did seem to be dirtier than in previous years.

Full returns are available in the ‘Beachwatch Returns’ section of this website. Interesting items found include 6 shotgun cartridges, a knife, a cannabis grinder and a Blackberry phone.

September 2012 - the big weekend

Mid-September is the Marine Conservation Society's annual Beachwatch event, when volunteers across the country will be cleaning the nation's beaches. Our small contribution will be to clean the stretch near the Pyramids.

This clean will differ from the normal pattern in that we have to note what we find. This information is then collated nationally by the MCS. 

Saturday 16th September, 10am - 12pm
location - between the Pyramids and South Parade Pier
starting point : by Rocksby's Cafe on the Esplanade (PO5 3PG)
