Working in groups, all the litter collected from a 100m stretch of the beach on Beaulieu Beach will be counted and recorded.
We will meet by the steps in Beaulieu Road at 9:45am. The steps are currently shut, but there is a track down that we can use or you can walk along the beach from either direction. Please bring gloves and wear sturdy footwear.
Anyone interested in helping, please register on the button below, or just turn up.
Sorry, we don’t think this is suitable for under 12s.
This is weather dependent so may need to be postponed.
Mulching in Turkey Road by The Bexhill Environmental Group.
Thank you to the eleven people who came along on Saturday and mulched the trees in Turkey Road. A special thank you to the members of The Highwoods and Bexhill Rotary Members who came along.
We were lucky with the weather and got all the trees mulched thus preparing them for the summer. .
