FREE Talk - Protecting Our Rivers and Seas

20 January, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Founded in 2012, Strandliners is an all-volunteer grassroots organisation based in East Sussex. From the River Cuckmere in the west to Dungeness in the east; from Pett Level and Camber Sands on Rye Bay, up the River Rother to Brede and beyond, their cause is to identify the toxic waste they pick and trace it to its source. It’s a cross-community effort with dedicated teams of 6 to 20 volunteers at each event.
Strandliners engages with “polluters” as stakeholders not adversaries. If we work together, we all have a better chance of turning back the plastic tide.

As Executive Director of Strandliners our speaker Andy Dinsdale has been leading riverbank-cleans and beach-cleans since 2004 and regularly represents the organisation at national and international marine conservation conferences.

Friday 20th January at the Goward Hall, Cade Street, Heathfield TN21 9BU. Click here for directions.

Doors open at 7.30 for refreshments and chit-chat; talk starts at 8 pm and finishes at 9 pm or shortly thereafter.
The Half Moon pub opposite the hall is happy to supply ‘take-out’ drinks.

This is event is FREE and NON-MEMBERS ARE WELCOME. Booking is not essential but it is helpful if you book your place so that we can ensure there are enough refreshments, and that we can get in touch should the event be cancelled due to speaker illness or other unforeseen circumstances.
