Small, local, private, social distancing beach cleans
Now that rules across the UK allow for more time to be spent outside, we are happy for volunteers to run beach cleans and litter surveys again – but only as small, local and private events, following the simple rules below:
- Always follow the government, and local council rules, where you are
- A private event with group numbers that follow your government advice, with social distancing measures in place
- Only clean a beach that is local to you (within 5 miles) – we don’t want to encourage anyone to travel
- Book these as private, closed events to avoid clashes with other beach cleans
- Update your risk assessment in accordance to our new safety guidelines
- Stay 2m apart from people other than your household
- Use gloves, litter pickers (if you have them) and wash your hands
If you’ve never run a beach clean or litter survey before we’re happy to help you get started. Please give our team a call on 01989 567807 or email us at Beachwatch@mcsuk.org
A Beachwatch beach clean and survey is great fun and really rewarding. Why not get involved – thousands do!
To volunteer at a beach clean, all you need to do is find an event and sign up to attend!
Then download our volunteer guide. If you need more information about the event, contact the organiser via the link on the event page.
