Description: As part of the World Cleanup Day, on Saturday 21st September we are going to clean up the coastline around Bangor Bay, covering the area from Luke's Point to Wilson's Point. We would love your support and help in achieving this. What makes this cleanup different is that all the litter we collect will be picked up by boat from designated pick-up points and taken to Seabird (Citizen Sea's Research and Education boat) where it will be combined with all the litter collected from coastal cleanups taking place around Belfast Lough on the day, and brought into Belfast Harbour with cameras and film crews in tow! This is a wonderful opportunity to get involved with cleaning up our coastline and highlighting the problem of coastal and marine litter both locally and around Belfast Lough. We will meet at the McKee Clock, bottom of High Street, Bangor, at 9.30am on Saturday September 21st where we will go through the arrangements for the cleanup, and collect litter pickers, gloves and bags. If you already have litter pickers or gloves please bring them with you. It will help ease the pressure on our group's equipment if we get more people than expected. We will then take a group photo. Please dress suitably for the weather and the terrain. Terrain: The terrain is highly variable as it includes the town's seafront. Some rocky and slippy surfaces. Footwear: Walking boots/Wellingtons/Sturdy shoes Clothing: It's wise to check the weather forecast beforehand. You're advised to wear old clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty.
