Flintshire hosts a clean up at Talacre!

rainbowbiz_kwt2Keep Wales Tidy is searching for volunteers across Wales to help get our beaches and coastline looking spick and span!

The third annual Clean Coast Week, sponsored by McDonald’s Restaurants Ltd, takes place from the 8–17 May 2015. The campaign coincides with Clean Europe Week which aims to reduce litter and promote responsible behaviour across the sea as well as here in Wales.

In Flintshire, a Big Beach Clean is taking place at Presthaven Sands and Talacre on Saturday 9th May from 10am.

Directions:  We will be meeting at Presthaven Beach Resort, off Shore Road, Lower Gronant, near Prestatyn. Drive to the bottom of Shore Road until you reach the security gate. The security guards will be aware that the event is taking place and will let you through. Follow the road through the resort until you see the Spar shop on your left hand side. You can park in the car park outside the Spar. Walk up the left hand side of the building, where we will be waiting to meet people.  See the map below:


Please contact judith.wright@keepwalestidy.org, if you intend to go along or if you would like more information. Bourne Leisure will be providing refreshments, so it would be useful to have an idea of numbers.

This is a great opportunity for everyone to get involved in appreciating and caring for our coast- from fixing local windswept fencing to clearing debris and litter left on our beaches.

Clean Coast Week 2015 follows the success of previous campaigns in 2013 and 2014, also sponsored by McDonald’s, when over 225 registered events took place across the Welsh coast, with over 5,100 people getting involved in collecting more than 5,000 bags of rubbish.

Go on, do your bit to Keep Wales Tidy in Flintshire!
