It was a very rainy April morning but a lucky group of 13 of us made our way to the beach. AES have signed up to ‘Adopt a Spot’ under the scheme run by Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful. The scheme formally enables groups across Northern Ireland to adopt an area and look after it. We will then hold four clean ups a year at this spot; we had already done two! This allows us to dedicate a small amount of time through the year to cleaning the shoreline here but still make a huge difference to the site.
With the combined might of AES Staff, Ulster Wildlife’s Living Seas Team, Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful and local volunteers, we were hoping to add to our total of 116 bags already cleared from this shore.
