In partnership with Friends of Weston Shore, Sea-Changers and The Green Blue
The local Southampton community is being called upon to take part in a beach clean on Saturday 24 August 2019 to protect and support the iconic coastal habitat and wildlife.
The clean, organised by Southampton International Boat Show, powered by Borrow A Boat, takes place at Weston Shore in the build-up to the Show, which starts next month. Show organiser, British Marine and its environmental programme, The Green Blue, has partnered with Friends of Weston Shore and Sea-Changers on the project.
The beach clean is one of a number of environmental commitments introduced by British Marine in 2019 to build on its dynamic long-term pledge to reduce the environmental impact of this iconic Show. This includes the introduction of water refill points around the event and the removal of all plastic bottles at catering outlets, as well as a continuation to move away from all single-use plastics, serve only sustainable fish and recycle waste wherever possible.
Date: Saturday 24 August 2019
Where: Weston Shore (SO19 9EF)
Meet by the Pitch and Putt (SO19 9DX) where there is parking. There is more parking at the car park on Weston Parade just 5 minutes walk further down towards Netley.
There is no need to bring anything (Except weather appropriate clothing!) as all litter picking equipment will be provided.
For those attending the Beach Clean, you will be in with a chance of winning a pair of Boat Show tickets. To confirm your attendance, please fill out the form below. We hope to see you there!
