We are a "branch" of "Surfers Against Sewage" volunteers, a grassroots movement that has grown into one of the UK’s most active and successful environmental charities. We formed in October 2017.
Find us on facebook at www.facebook.com/groups/SASRhyl
We’re a community dedicated to the protection of oceans, waves, beaches and wildlife.
Our first beach clean, in October last year, was attended by 4 hardy souls. More recently we have attracted up to 70 keen beach cleaners!
Of course it’s not just surfers who care passionately about our coastlines — our members are swimmers, dog walkers, paddleboarders, beach cleaners, kite surfers, sandcastle builders, ice cream eaters and sun bathers too.
We're now looking to be proactive against plastic, rather than just reactive to rubbish and we're guiding our lovely town and its amazing community towards the SAS #PlasticFree Status and to become a #PlasticFreeCommunity
Local schools and businesses are on board and the Rhyl Town Council have adopted a resolution to back us in our efforts.
We’ll always care about Water Quality issues and our Safer Seas Service continually monitors sewage spills in real time on beaches around the UK. But ‘Plastic is the new sewage’ as it is now the biggest threat to our beaches, our precious marine eco-system and our happiness.
Thank you for reading our blurb and we hope to see you soon at one of our events. Or helping to join the resistance by reducing your use of single use / avoidable plastic.
