progress report

We've collected 520 bags so far!


Founded: 07th Mar 2012


Town or City: Durham Coast

Areas covered: Durham Coast - Seaham to Crimdon

Durham's coastline is unique.  Nowhere else in Britain has such a wonderful display of magnesian limestone coastal grasslands supporting a vast array of wildflowers and insects.  Most of the coast is now designated as a National Nature Reserve with several Sites of Special Scientific Interest.  The England Coast Path runs through the area and is becoming evermore popular with visitors.

The beaches are improving after the impact of coal mining and coastal towns such as Seaham have seen a dramatic increase in tourism.  The beaches still suffer from litter and are regularly cleaned by groups of keen volunteers.  If you would like to join in please see the upcoming event section for more details.

We can support groups who want to carry out their own event by supplying equipment (bags, litterpickers, gloves etc) and organising the safe collection and disposal of the rubbish bags after the event.

Please pass this information on to anyone you think may be interested.
