Thousands of beach-goers showed their love for the coast recently by attending our Big Beach Picnics. Local teams at four of our most popular coastal places hosted these special events on the 4th of July to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our Coastline Campaign.
At Rhossili, Gower, beachgoers basked in the sun on the headland overlooking one of Britain’s most spectacular beaches as they were entertained by the world-renowned Morriston Orpheus Choir, the Penclawdd Brass Band and other musical performances. Happy picnickers at Barafundle, Marloes and Llanbedrog beaches were also treated to storytelling, surfing lessons, beach games, fancy dress photography and face painting.
There was no danger of anyone leaving any litter behind. We teamed up with our friends at Keep Wales Tidy and organised popular two-minute beach cleans. Event organiser Lowri Roberts said, “Everyone had a great time – and the beach was left cleaner than it was before.”
