Welcome to the December 2022/January 2023 newsletter

What a jam packed end of the year to the tenth anniversary of Strandliners!
Strandliners started in 2012 as an idea to take action against the seemingly forever increase in waste plastics found washed up on our local beaches. And look where we are now – members of international groups and organisations working together to eliminate plastic pollution and focus on Zero Waste strategies.

We have been continuing with the Preventing Plastic Pollution (PPP) project around the River Ouse, Adur and Rother catchments. Meeting people who want to get involved and discovering new sites for surveys.

We held our first Winter Workshop – on sea beans and mermaid purses. A cracking time with brilliant participants, we even saw a Coco De Mer!

Strandliners had a stand at the 4th Ocean Symposium held in Bexhill, the UNA Climate & Oceans bringing together many national and community organisations.

The Rother Voluntary Action AGM held a surprise for Beverley, she won an award for volunteering with Strandliners, fully deserved for the amount of time she gives.

2023 membership is open now. £12 for new members and £10 for existing members to renew. Thank you for all members for supporting Strandliners.

Social media presence

Another way to help Strandliners reach a greater audience is through our social media presence. We are notoriously not amazing at keeping up with letting everyone know what we do but if all subscribers were able to support through “liking”, “sharing” and/or reposting it would really helpful!
