charmouth heritage coast centreCHARMOUTH Heritage Coast Centre is encouraging all to take part in its upcoming beach clean. 

As part of the Great Dorset Beach Clean, to be held from April 2 to 10, the heritage centre will be hosting a litter pick from 3pm on Sunday, April 10, meeting in the car park outside the centre.

Equipment will be provided but participants are asked to bring their own gloves, and children should be accompanied by an adult.

A spokesperson for the centre said: “As we all now know, plastic is very bad news for our marine wildlife. We must do all we can to improve the situation by cleaning up our coastline. 

“The Great Dorset Beach Clean is taking place from April 2 to 10 and a fantastic turnout is expected from locals and visitors alike who want to keep our beaches in a pristine condition in order to help the survival of the creatures and plant life of our seas.”

Lyme Regis will also be taking part in the Great Dorset Beach Clean with a litter pick on Sunday, April 3 from 10am, meeting outside the RNLI shop at the Cobb.

The Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre wardens will soon be launching their new Seashore Safaris, with the first to be held on April 15.

Join a marine warden to explore the fascinating creatures and plants of the seashore and how they live in the challenging environment of the tidal rockpools.

Get involved in citizen science by collecting data on crabs or seaweed and learn how climate change is affecting their habitat.

The centre will also be open seven days a week from April 1. For full details on all upcoming events, visit https://charmouth.org/chcc
