The Great British Spring Clean in capital today

Beach Buddies joining forces with Douglas Council

Douglas Council and Beach Buddies are teaming up for The Great British Spring Clean in the capital this morning.

Two potential hot spots have been identified – the footpath leading from Castletown Old Road via the Nunnery onto the River Glass and the Port Skillion footpaths leading to the beach and the beach itself.  

The event is open to everyone and all equipment will be provided.

Any items collected will be removed by Douglas Corporation, with materials such as plastics, glass and metals being recycled.  

Bill Dale, founder of Beach Buddies says “we are delighted to be asked to team up with Douglas Town Council again. We have had a positive relationship with the Council for many years and it has been a really strong partnership which has  made a difference to the town.

”Councillor Falk Horning, Chair of the Council’s Environmental Services Committee, says “we are encouraging as many people as possible to get involved - especially families. Everyone will receive a warm welcome.”

Those wanting to help at Port Skillion should meet at Douglas breakwater at 10am with the Nunnery footpath cleanup starting an hour later.
