A BRAND new initiative happens this weekend when Beach Buddies teams up with the local residents in Laxey & Garff for a community clean-up event.
The meeting point for the volunteer session this Sunday (September 11th at 10.30am) is not actually on a beach at all, but at the Washing Floors in Laxey where we are teaming up with local residents for a clean-up around the village, including the beach area.
After a break for the MGP and potential weather disruption last weekend, this is the first time in three weeks Beach Buddies will be in action for a volunteer team event – and we’re going ahead this time, whatever the weather!!
With support from Laxey & Garff Commissioners, this is the first of a series of new events for Beach Buddies, in support of local residents who sought our advice to help with community clean-ups.
We are hoping to replicate this idea all around the Island, based on the success of a long-standing friendship with the people of Jurby where we have jointly hosted very successful and well supported community clean-up events with the local Commissioners for a number of years.
Beach Buddies is supplying all the equipment for this weekend’s event and recycling as much of the items collect as possible.
