Cancelled Fix the Firth - Solway/Eden


Event details


Cancelled due to tier 4 Covid restrictions


“Fix the Firth”

Solway Coast Beach/Bank Cleans.                Covid-19: We work 2+ metres apart.  

The Coronavirus Act 2020, Amendment 4 of 14/9/20 allows work & voluntary service anywhere & by any number of people.  Our work cannot be carried out at home, is entirely outdoors & avoids public transport.  

Past events: from August 2017 to mid-November 2020 we have held 180 beach cleans & collected 3755 bags of rubbish + tyres, fish crates, heavy rope etc.  Allerdale Borough Council's contractors Tivoli took these to the Hespin Wood Mechanical Biological Treatment Plant which claims to recycle 80% of North Cumbria's waste.

LCC call for members to join an organised Estuary/River litter pick - a RIVER BANK CLEAN UP

Meet: Rockcliff - riverside @ 10am, joining the clean up team.  They may request we bring our kayaks, to cross to the opposite banks, which are normally not accessible.

Date:  Tuesday 5th January 2021 - 10am til 2.00pm

Meet/park: 10am ROCKCLIFFE, Village on Marsh View, postcode CA6 4AD, at the end of School Lane, a sharp & narrow bend off Rockcliffe's Main Street between the large church with a spire & the modern primary school.

Shuttles:  NOT required

Numbers:  sticking to the RULE of 2 - however I will open up the places to 2  planning to have 2 reserves, who can quickly replace any members who have to cancel

Equipment:  Fave Mask, hand sanitiser, Gloves, Wellies and bin liners required & Dogs r OK.   

Kayaks:  it is likely John will request we cross the Eden in our kayaks, to clear the Banks his team do not have easy access to, so I will confirm if this is required.
