RC Stonehaven Beach Clean

Helping and Having Fun in the Community

On Sunday 8th July, twenty-eight Stonehaven Rotary Club members, family and friends volunteered for the Club’s first Beach Clean.

Newly appointed Club President, John Balsillie, said “No one likes to see rubbish anywhere – be it on our beach, in our parks, on our streets or in our countryside.  At the start of what we hope will be another busy and successful season for Stonehaven we wanted to do our bit to keep the beach clean for locals and visitors to enjoy and to remove plastic that will endanger our marine wildlife.”

John added “It was a successful beach clean and everyone enjoyed themselves and felt good afterwards.  Each piece of plastic and rubbish removed is a piece that will not end up as marine litter and plastic pollution.”

The Club had support and guidance from SAS (Surfers Against Sewage) a marine conservation charity working with communities to protect our seas, beaches and marine life.

Inspired by David Attenborough’s Blue Planet II – the Club are also supporting the hashtag - #2minutebeachclean  - which is encouraging us to spend just two minutes picking litter on the beach or anywhere that will help improve our environment.
