Event Summary

Join Southsea Beachwatch at 10am on Southsea promenade, near the Rock Gardens/ the Pyrammids. Everyone is welcome!

Please register here: https://www.mcsuk.org/beachwatch/beach/southsea-end-rock-gardens/event/2019-09-21

How it works:
* Listen to the mini briefing.
* The first 20 volunteers will be asked to carry out a litter survey.
* Borrow bags, litter pickers or gloves. (If you can bring your own
that would be very helpful)
* Get cleaning!

If you can't make it for 10am, feel free to join us anytime before 11:15 as Colas collect the bags at 12.

Just a few words about health & safety:
* Use gloves or the pickers to pick up rubbish.
* Walk around the pier rather than under it.
* Ask a coordinator to pick up any needles for you (it's rare that we find any of these).
* Cover up any dog poo with stones rather than try to pick it up.
* Avoid the big rocks by the Pyramids as they may be slippery.
* Mind the water's edge.
* If we're lucky to have a sunny day, wear suncream!
* If you find a jellyfish, don't touch it with your bare hands.

We'd like to reduce the number of big bags we use, so please bring a bucket/ reusable sturdy bag and at the end we'll empty it into our white bags.

Price: Free
