Beach Clean Spring 2018

Local resident, Colin Derbyshire is committed to marine protection and has organised a beach clean for Spring 2018, working in collaboration with Surfers Against Sewage. The sea is our USP here in Hastings and St Leonards on Sea, so it makes sense to look after shores.

2 Minute Beach Clean

Got two minutes? Then why not make a difference with a two minute beach clean. #2minutebeachclean is a project that was started in Cornwall by Martin Dorey and is rapidly sweeping across the world. And it’s good to see that Hastings has now adopted the scheme writes Zelly Restorick.

How degrading!

Every year, I post this poster from The Green Blue, telling us how long it takes our rubbish to bio-degrade, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick. A friend and I put them up along the coast – on noticeboards, in cafes, in shops, wherever water is near. Anyone we speak to is always shocked at how long things take to decompose.

Clean Seas Please!

In two years time, more stringent European standards will be applied to the quality of our bathing water and, based on current measurements, there’s a chance swimming in the sea at Hastings might be banned. However, all is not lost, writes HOT’s Zelly Restorick, there’s still time for us to make our part of the coast a place to happily and healthily enjoy the beach and sea.
