Falmouth Town Council, Falmouth Bay Residents Association and Fathoms Free are joining together for a beach and seafront litter pick on 1st April, based at Gyllyngvase Beach. Everyone welcome with divers, organised by Atlantic Scuba, carrying out an underwater litter pick; this is chance to really make a difference to Falmouth’s seafront … safer for wildlife, more enjoyable for everyone to stroll along our beautiful seafront with no litter in sight
All divers welcome, bring your own kit. We can supply bags to carry around to collect the litter if you need one.
If we can get enough dive organisers, we will attempt an underwater clean at Swanpool, Gyllyngvase, Castle Beaches and at Pendennis.
