sasbeachcleanupSurfers Against Sewage (SAS) believe protecting Isle of Wight beaches from marine litter needs year-round volunteer action. With this in mind, this Sunday (15th September) sees the Cold Water Beach Clean Series, a new SAS initiative in collaboration with The Crown Estate, visit Grange Chine and Compton beaches.

During the coldest months, marine litter accumulates in huge quantities on our coastline, threatening the safety and enjoyment of beaches by surfers, walkers and other sports enthusiasts during the winter months.

The Cold Water Beach Clean Series will be at Grange Chine from 10am – 12pm and Compton from 2pm – 4pm this Sunday and volunteers can register by emailing [email protected].

All volunteers will learn more about the threat that marine litter poses and will receive full beach clean equipment before heading out to clean their local beach. All those who sign in will also be entered into a draw to win a Finisterre Etobicoke jacket worth £160.
