Clean up #6 Long Park 24th June 2018

Despite blistering heat and England vs Panama on the TV, about 15 hard core Warriors turned out for our badly planned Long Park and Woolbrook clear up. Taking it slowly on one of the hottest days of the year, we worked our way round Long Park and spread out to the skate park, river and Read more about Clean up #6 Long Park 24th June 2018[…]

Clean Up #5 SAS Sidmouth Sea Fest May 12th 2018

I apologise for the lack of enthusiasm for this post – not posted the same day or near as usual – but I really wasn’t well on this day but dragged myself along as it had been a long standing plan to start Sea Fest 2018 with a beach clean.

First beach clean

Clean up #1 – Jan 13th 2018

The call went out only a few days before, but we had at least 20 people turn up for our first ever organised clear up as the Sidmouth Plastic Warriors.
