**Surfers Against Sewage’s 20th Anniversary Beach Clean Tour Hits Bigbury**

This August, Surfers Against Sewage (SAS), in association with the Quiksilver Foundation & myGames (powered by v), will be hitting the road with the biggest beach clean tour in its history. Since 1994, the volume of marine litter on UK beaches has increased by 146%* and SAS is helping combat this tide line of trash through its beach cleans and ongoing campaigns.  ‘Motivocean’ is SAS’s most ambitious beach clean tour to date and will be calling in at over 20 major UK beaches and waterside locations across the nation, including 9 locations across Cornwall and the Devon:

Thursday, 19th August Porthmeor, St Ives, in front of surf school, 1pm
Saturday, 21st August Sennen, in front of beach restaurant, 1pm
Sunday 22nd August Praa Sands, in front of Lifeguard Hut, 1pm
Sunday 22nd August Croyde, North End of the Beach, 1pm
Monday 23rd August Porthtowan, Blue Bar end of the beach, 1pm
Tuesday 24th August South Fistral, near the lifeguard station, 1pm
Wednesday 25th August Bude, Crooklets, 1pm
Wednesday 25th August Gwithian, Godrivey End, Nr wooden bridge, Red River, 1pm
**Thursday 26th August Bigbury On Sea, nr Car Park, Venus Café, 1pm**

Everyone is welcome at the events and thanks to the support of the national youth volunteering charity v, SAS can also offer volunteers between 16 – 25 years old the opportunity to access and experience exciting sports, including surfing, by participating in these beach cleans. The sea and coastal environment are a vital component of so many sporting activities from sailing to surfing, and SAS hopes to further build awareness about coastal conservation by linking beach sports to the protection of the environment.

Hugo Tagholm, Director of Surfers Against Sewage, commented, “We’re delighted to be holding our ‘Motivocean 20th Anniversary Beach Clean Tour’ at so many locations across the South West where SAS is based. The tour will help us engage a record number of new environmental activists and volunteers to make a meaningful difference to the UK’s precious beaches and the wider marine environment. We look forward to welcoming everyone to local events; our members, supporters, families and youth volunteers.”
