Pegwell Bay Beach Clean
10 April, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Following a very successful and well-attended beach clean in April 2021, we are once again organising The Pegwell Bay Beach Clean on Sunday 10th April 2022 from 1.30 till 3.30pm. We have been advised that that tide will be out at that time for easy access to the beach.
Pegwell Bay is one of Europe’s most important staging posts for migrating birds and insects. It is both a National Nature Reserve and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) but unfortunately the area suffers from litter – mainly small plastic items being washed up on to the beach all year round.
We are meeting at the car park in front of the Viking Ship Café from 1pm onwards. The Café will be open for drinks and refreshments before and after the event.
Thanet Coast Project and Ramsgate Town Council have kindly offered to provide us with the Litter picking equipment and after the usual briefing and health and safety talk, we will proceed down to the beach and start the beach clean. We will be working in small groups in line with health and safety guidance.
Once again we are thankful to Kent Wildlife Trust, Thanet Coast Project, RTC and TDC for the loan of equipment and support.
Do come and join us and bring your friends, children and grandchildren!
John Walker and Meher Basit
