Beanie Beach Cleanie 2018

A public beach clean event in memory of Dom Jackson.   Lunan Bay - Angus   We chose Kingston Beach on the Moray coast in 2017, but stayed closer to home this time and organised our beach clean at Lunan Bay, a beach which Dom was particularly fond of.     The Results!   20 bags of general waste (mostly much smaller items) 150 recyclable bottles and cans larger items included a sit on toy motorbike   We estimate we had around 70 keen beanie beach cleaners! x We were once again supported by Surfers Against Sewage's brilliant annual 'Big Spring Beach Clean' campaign.
