We are holding a Covid safe Great Angus Beach Clean weekend of 19th and 20th September. Why not make a difference in these difficult times and collect 4 items of litter from a beach near you. If you can't get to a beach then why not pick up 4 items
from the street or the park and prevent it from reaching the sea. Remember that 80% of marine litter originates from land.
Please place your 4 items of litter in a local bin. If you are collecting litter from the beach between
Carnoustie and Arbroath and wish to pick up more you can leave it in a bin bag above the high tide line (make it visible) and we will colllect it in the All-Terrain -Vehcile.
Beach Organiser Leads across the Angus Coast are
organising private cleans to ensure that they can record their MCS 100m survey data. School chidlren are cleaning litter from their playgrounds and surrounding areas.
In East Haven we have been gifted a massive share station
from East Grampian Coastal Partnership. From there we can loan equipment to the public and also give them gloves and bags.
People have been walking Scotland's beaches for hundreds of years and keeping themselves safe. We can all
do this and the following provides a reminder of how we can take responsibility for our own safety.
Low tide is at 10am on Saturday and 10.45am on Sunday
Don't go out if you have any covid 19 symptoms.

bring a bag for what you collect.
bring a litter picker if you have one.
bring hand sanitiser
think about the weather e.g. bring
waterproofs or sunscreen – whichever is needed
cover up any cuts.
Don't lift anything too heavy or sharp
