We’d like to say a super-massive “thank you” to everyone who got out on to a beach over the weekend to take part in the Great British Beach Clean. Your support is amazing and not only leaves the beaches cleaner but provides us with the data to push for change.

We are pretty sure this has been the biggest event we’ve ever run – we’ll know soon when all of the survey results are in.

You can be the first to hear about them if you’re signed up to our Enewsletter (sign up using the box on the right of this page).

In the meantime, here are just a few highlights from the weekend
