Sinclair Bay Beach Clean
The beautiful beach at Sinclair Bay, north of Wick, Caithness is looking more inviting to visitors and wildlife after an extensive beach clean which took place on Sunday 27th of April. The weather held for the volunteers to fill a skip full of bags from the masses of accumulated litter along the beach.
The event was funded through the Moray Firth Partnership and organised as an environmental project for the Caithness Countryside Volunteers by the Highland Council Ranger Service. Valuable assistance on the day was provided by Mr Watt from Subsea 7, who loaded, transported and unloaded all the fill bags to a skip on the Wester Site.
The turn out for the beach clean was excellent with over 40 people attending the event. With such a great turn out, it was possible to clean the majority of the beach. Many volunteers were members of the Caithness Countryside Volunteers and Caithness Critters (local children's nature group). Further support was provided by other members of the local community.
Many thanks to all the volunteers who turned out on the day and to Mr Watt for his assistance.
