Surfers Against Sewage beach clean - Weston Shore, Southampton

Who is this for?

2016 was the biggest year for Surfers Against Sewage beach cleans with 946 beach cleans taking place across the UK, mobilising 19,500 volunteers and removing 64 tonnes of marine litter from our coastline. They couldn’t have been able to achieve these successes without the help, support and passion of volunteers!

Sadly, after a winter of storms, our beaches need us again which is why they are organising a beach clean on Weston Shore in Southampton on Sunday 2nd April between 11am and 1pm.

Weston Shore needs your helping hands on Sunday 2nd April. Join SAS and your local community for a Big Spring Beach Clean from 11am-1pm as part of their biggest Big Spring Beach Clean ever!
