Great British Beach Clean

Thank you to everybody who supported our big beach clean at the weekend. Encouragingly, there was not as much beach litter as normal because of all the effort people have put in to keeping it clean over the summer. However, we extended  our area towards Arbroath and down towards Carnoustie, to clear as much as possible. Once the litter was all uplifted we surveyed  it all which involved tipping the contents of bags on to tarpaulin and literally counting and recording every item. That information will now go to Marine Conservation Scotland to help assess what is currently polluting our seas and what the source is.
