The Exe Estuary Management Partnership is holding an Estuary clean- up event on Saturday 19th May 2012, between 12 noon and 2.00 pm, from the Imperial Recreation Ground, Exmouth. Everybody is welcome to come along and get involved. Please help spread the word.. It’s a great way to blow away the cobwebs and burn some calories whilst making a real difference to the beauty and health of the Estuary and all its users. Good free family fun! Last autumn we organised a similar event that was a huge success, with around 130 volunteers working together to clear a skip full of litter from Exmouth Nature Reserve. A diverse array of items was recovered, including a chair, chimney pot – and even a kitchen sink! Who knows what we’ll find this time…?

Thanks to the very kind generosity of Stuart Line Cruises, we are able to offer a free river cruise with simple buffet on board to 80 volunteers after the clean up (on a first come, first served basis). East Devon District Council is kindly providing 40 free parking vouchers for volunteers whilst participating in the clean up.

So do come along if you can (and bring a friend), but please let me know if you plan to come so that I can ensure we have enough equipment – and enough food of course! Phone 01392 382236
