Beach Clean and working at the jetty

We were pleased to support Broadstairs Town Team's beach clean in Viking and Stone Bays. And we were at it again, this time helping with the repainting of the jetty in May 2021.


We found that the beaches were pretty clean, though we did our bit to improve them. It was reassuring to find lots of people, young and old, who are proud of their beaches and determined to help keep them clean.

The morning, only an hour or so of our time - prolonged by coffee and pastries at the Pavilion - was well organised by the Town Team. it was better than painless. It was fun!

There are lots of groups in the area who are keen to help protect the environment and we look forward to lending our support in the future.

A couple of us ventured down again to the jetty at Viking Bay in late May 2021 in support of Broadstairs Harbour and Seafront community Company. Alongside other volunteers, organised by Broadstairs Town Team, we spent a couple of hours scraping old paint and sanding down the wooden railings around the jetty. There was much more to be down when we left; more scraping and sanding ahead of painting. Our club would hope to continue our support.

And, as can be seen from the pictures, the sun shone down on the righteous.
