This week my blog is exactly one year old! And what a year it’s been! My first ever “proper” post (after an introductory one) was a visit to Loughshore Park in Jordanstown to help take part in the 2014 M&S Big Beach Clean-up.
Every year, M&S team up with the Marine Conservation Society to help rid our beaches of unwanted rubbish.
There’s lots of everyday rubbish such as cans and crisp packets, but there are always some more unusual items such as a hammer, a For Sale sign and even a plastic leg!
This year I’ll be back where it all started for the 2015 M&S Big Beach Clean-up at Hazelbank in Newtownabbey on Monday 11 May at 10am! Hopefully you’ll sign up too: www.mcsuk.org/foreverfish
In Northern Ireland, there are also beach cleans at:
- Portballintrae – Thursday 7th May at 10.30am
- Warrenpoint, Newry – Monday 11th May at 10.00am
- Ballyholme, Bangor – Wednesday 13th May at 10.00am
To celebrate the beach clean (and my one year anniversary), I’ve teamed up with Marks & Spencer to give away a £100 M&S gift card to spend in store! What a nice prize!
To be in with a chance of winning, just head to my Facebook page to find out more – it’s http://www.Facebook.com/BelfastTravels
The competition closes on Sunday 10th May and the winner will be picked at random on the day of the beach clean, Monday 11 May!
