Great Dorset Beach Clean: Charmouth
The annual beach clean-up returns as part of the ‘Litter Free Coast and Sea’  week! Bring your friends and family and lend a hand at any of the designated beaches. A Beachmaster will be there to provide you with rubbish bags, gloves and instructions. Please wear suitable clothing and shoes for the conditions Help to remove plastics and other rubbish from the shore. The vast majority of litter found on Dorset’s beaches is made of plastic, which steadily accumulates if not removed.  As standard plastics never degrade, they circle around the world in ocean currents and can cause long-term damage.  Whales, dolphins and turtles can mistake floating plastic bags for the jellyfish which form part of their diet. Once swallowed the plastic bag blocks the stomach and leads to a slow death through starvation.   Dorset's beaches need you:  Under 18’s need to be accompanied by an adult.  No need to bring any equipment as we'll provide it except please wear practical footwear and suitable clothing for the weather! Come and join us! 
10.30-12.30. Meet at the Foreshore car park. Parking is P&D. Run by staff and volunteers from Charmouth Heritage Centre

Enjoy a beer from Lyme Regis Brewery or a delicious meal from The Courtyard Cafe.  The creative artisan businesses and art galleries will also be open if you wish to purchase a unique souvenir of your visit to the creative heart of Lyme Regis. (see below)

WALKS and TOURS
 

Do take advice about safe tide times before setting off for more than fifteen minutes hike, without a guide, along our beautiful beaches: - what appears to be an easy bit of ground to scramble over is more likely to be a treacherous mud slide - don't take a chance!
