Surfers Against Sewage Beach Clean 29 November 2009

Surfers Against Sewage Beach Clean - Saunton beach to Crow point
29th November 2009. Start 11am.
Surfers Against Sewage (SAS), with the support of various local businesses, is calling for volunteers to help with a community beach clean from the rocks on the north end of Saunton beach all the way to Crow Point on Sunday the 29th November. This beach sits at the heart of a UNESCO biosphere reserve, and unfortunately due to the strong winds and swell recently, it has seen a greater than usual influx of marine litter to its shore. SAS is requesting the assistance of volunteers from the local community, especially those that rely on this beautiful natural resource for business, or use the beach regularly for enjoyment, to come down on the day and help give the beach a good tidy up. Wild Thyme café from Braunton have generously offered to keep the troops well nourished with soup and rolls, with veggies supplied by Edds the grocer. Other businesses lending assistance and support are Loose-Fit surf shop, Surfed Out surf shop, Tiki surf shop, Second Skin surf shop, Gulf Stream surfboards and Saunton Sands Lifesaving club amongst others. SAS are also looking for a horse and cart on the day to help with rubbish removal from the far side of the beach, so if anyone can help with this please contact Mikey Corker on 01271813300, or by email to All hands will be greatly appreciated. If you would like to be involved please contact Mikey, or otherwise just come down on the day. Note: Wear warm, appropriate clothing for the day including sturdy footwear. SAS will provide biodegradable bin bags, gloves and full instructions, including health & safety advice, for the beach clean on the day.
