Surfers Against Sewage have announced their Big Spring Beach Clean, aiming to rid the coastline of plastic waste and other rubbish.
The SAS event is taking place between April 7 and April 15, and is the largest and most effective beach cleaning project in the UK, if not Europe.
If you would like to organise an event, and to find out where events are near you, visit the SAS website.
Other Beach Clean events exist, including one in Falmouth that is part of a wider Spring Clean, organised by Falmouth Festival.
On 16 & 17 March Falmouth Spring Clean Days will be taking place, including beach cleaning, painting, gardening. A number of areas around town will be revamped, and volunteers are invited to come and get their hands dirty. Phone 01326 313553 for more information, or see the Love Falmouth website.
