Beach cleaning heroes
Every week teams of dedicated volunteers go out on the North West coast to show how much they love their beach by taking part in a beach clean. One of the main reasons summarised here is “Satisfaction in being able to give something back, to help keep my local environment clean.”
Here’s a word cloud of reasons given – could you benefit from taking part and help the environment too? Find beach clean events here

Sefton survey

The LOVEmyBEACH project in Sefton would like to know how you’re helping improve water quality at their bathing waters but also what else you could do at home for #cleanerseas.
The survey won't take long and is entirely anonymous. Please take part here – thank you.
