Plastic Free Milford-on-Sea Beach Clean
21st September – 10.30am – 12 noon.
Plastic Free Milford-on-Sea and Milford-on-Sea Parish Council have organised another Beach Clean on Saturday 21st September at 10.30am – 12 noon – meet outside the Needles Eye Café at Hurst Road. Everyone is welcome and all kit will be provided but bring your own protective gloves if you prefer and wear suitable clothing and sturdy footwear.
The Clean follows a very successful event in April which launched the initiative. Over 45 people turned up and collected lots of rubbish from beach, including food wrapper, plastic bottles and even an old rusty saw.
The campaign has been organised by the Parish Council along with the Milford Visitor and Business Group and local businesses such as New Forest Paddlesport Company. New Forest District Council is providing the beach cleaning equipment. Together we’re tackling avoidable, throwaway plastic, from our beach, rivers and green spaces.
It’s not about removing all plastic from our lives. It’s about stopping using single-use plastic and changing the system that produces it. Being a Plastic Free Community does not mean there is no plastic. Being a Plastic Free Community means we are starting work to turn the tide on plastic pollution. It means we are pulling together different aspects of our community; collaborating and including everyone to bring about the culture change we need to see. We are also part of a national network of communities all doing the same, backed up by the national campaigns and actions of Surfers Against Sewage.
For more details contact Sarah Pitt at the Parish Council – firstname.lastname@example.org.
