If you use What3words.com then we will give a briefing at ///trapdoor.clerk.decide before walking 250m to ///apricot.duplicity.tides The first is the top of the steps at the end of Herbrand Walk, Cooden, Bexhill-on-Sea and the second is just after the river outflow on the beach west from the steps.
We cleaned the beach in 2018 and 2019. In summer it is used as a naturist beach and some of our members come here. If the weather is warm then we will clean the beach naked.
Please bring robust shoes and plastic or gardening gloves. We have a couple of litter pickers, a bucket for glass and a first aid kit. Please bring you own water, sunscreen, hat etc.
A skinny dip may be possible after the cleaning.
The results from the beach itself will be sent to the Marine Conservation Society to be compiled into their annual report.
Also worth knowing…
What to bring: We’d recommend you pack a rucksack with a few essentials like sunscreen, waterproofs, hand sanitiser, and perhaps some snacks and a drink (in a reusable bottle, of course).
What to wear: If you're picking up litter with your hands it's worth wearing a strong pair of gloves - like gardening gloves - just to make sure you're protected. Sturdy shoes are a must for protection too.
Under 16s: To comply with our insurance, volunteers under 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult who will be asked to sign a parental / guardian consent form on the day by the beach clean organiser.
