Blue Reef Aquarium Beach Clean this weekend

21st March 2017

Categories: Latest News


Hastings Blue Reef Aquarium is inviting volunteers to join them on a spring beach clean on Saturday March 25th.


Staff from the Rock-a-Nore Road wildlife attraction will be hosting the first official beach tidy event of the year from 11am on the stretch of beach beside the aquarium.


All volunteers will be issued with collecting bin bags and gloves – which have been provided free by Hastings Council - and a reporting form to record their finds.


“The event has already proved popular with lots of families signing up to get involved,” said Blue Reef’s Leanna Lawson.


“It’s a great way to get out there, meet people, get some exercise and also do something practical which will directly benefit the local environment.


“Hastings Council has once again kindly agreed to provide us with a selection of litter picking tools and now we need some energetic volunteers to help us out.


“The plan is to meet up at the aquarium at 10.30am on the day so everyone can be registered and issued with cleaning items, datasheets and beach clean booklets.


“All the rubbish that we collect will then be brought back to the aquarium where it will be separated out and individually itemised.


“After that we will recycle as much of it as we possibly can while the rest will be disposed of safely” she added.


Anyone under the age of 17 who wants to take part will need to be accompanied by an adult. Volunteers are asked to contact Blue Reef to confirm their attendance prior to the event. They should also wear sensible footwear and warm clothing.


Last year’s beach cleans have proved so popular with the public the aquarium is planning to run them more regularly throughout 2017 with more sessions planned in May, July and September.

Volunteers should contact the aquarium on 01424 718776, via email at or by signing up on the Facebook event.
