Adopt a Patch of Beach
Skerries News has come up with an innovative idea to keep Skerries’ beaches clean, safe and looking great. Stretches of the beach, from the Rugby Club all the way round to Kelly’s Bay, will be assigned to local clubs, organisations, scout troupes and families. Skerries News will provide bags & litter grabbers and highlight who is responsible for each stretch of beach. They’ll also hold a beachfront barbecue at the end of each season, where certificates and prizes will be given out. All you have to do is pick your patch and keep it clean.
To sign up for the scheme you can contact Skerries News here. Or you can contact them directly on 01 849 0629.
I walk and tidy my section on South Beach about 4 days each week.
I notice very little on sections 1 – 8.
Sometimes grass cuttings are dumped in the Wildflower Area between tarmac path and the beach. Litter can hide here also.
It maybe useful if members of the group can get others to do their section when on holidays etc ….. ie Rota
In this regard mobile numbers are needed.
