This is a large stretch of beach which is full of plastic. We will work in collaboration with SFP, Rotary Dumfries team and Nature Scot. The aim of this clean is to carry and collect all the larger plastic items and pile them into a flat fenced area away from the high tide mark. These will then be extracted off at a later decided date.
Meet at Auchencairn school for 10am.
Please car share where we can here.
Convoy down to Rascarrel farm (coded barrier) this will be manned by myself or laura to allow everyone through.
Please note: If you are parking here, you must be able to stay for the full duration of the clean as to all go back out at the same time. This is in respect of the landowner’s wishes.
The clean will end at approx 2.30pm.
The plan is to car park here and walk a good 20 mins, taking us back through the barrier, through rascarrel farm and field, bringing us to a kissing gate and down to the barlocco bay itself.
We will carry, collect and pile the larger waste items, until a later date is decided to extract it off and out of this area.
Please wrap up warm, bring waterproofs, wear appropriate and supportive footwear for uneven beach terrain.
Bring packed lunch, snacks and plenty of water.
Be great to have kids along helping, get in touch if you have a group (as may have option of a minibus).
Dogs welcome, however must be kept on lead through farm and field until we get through gate at the bay.
We really need all the man power we can get for this clean, so please come along and help us make a difference.
