I’ve been a little quiet on the 30 Days Wild front for a few days. We’ve been extremely busy because we are moving house this Friday! We have been doing something wild – I’ve just not had time to blog!
Today though, we did do something I need to blog about. As part of my job working for the Field Stidies Council at Castle Head, I have taken on the role of coordinating the beach cleans at a part of the local coastline which we use for activities – Humphrey Head. This is in partnership with Love My Beach (Morecambe Bay Partnership) and the Marine Conservation Society.
So this afternoon, while entertaining the kids, we went on a reconnaissance mission to Humphrey Head. There was a bit of Cumbrian style congestion on the way down…
But it cleared and we made it!
I was shocked at the amount of litter down there, and saddened that so many people don’t take responsibility for their refuse.
Me: Pip, what do you think about all the litter?
Pip: It’s not nice.
Me: Should it be on the floor?
Pip: Nooo! It should be in a bin.
Even a 3 year knows!
I’m looking forward to getting it cleaned up! If you’re local or fancy a visit and would like to help me out, the next beach clean at Humphrey Head is Sunday 19th July 10am-12noon! Everyone is welcome, bring gloves! Litter pickers etc provided. Email me for info etc. (firstname.lastname@example.org) . I’m hoping that Pip and Bee can come along with Nanny and Grandpa 🙂
After our reccy, we climbed up a little path into the woods from the car park. Pip didn’t enjoy the down climb…
It’s nearly always worth that little bit extra encouragement 🙂
After a successful Reconaissance mission, we hit a traffic jam on the way back. It was really plodding…
