Proud of Mersea Litter Picks
Help us to ensure our picks are never this successful
It gives us no pleasure to pick up this amount of litter from our lovely island. Wouldn’t it be great if we went on a litter pick and couldn’t find any?
Sadly we are nowhere near that at the moment. Please come along to our picks. We have fun, you’ll make new friends and help to keep our island looking beautiful.
A list of the Mersea picks can be found below, we don’t just pick on the island! We will be doing our annual high tide pick on Saturday 5th March, meet at the Peldon Rose at 1300. Although all ages are welcome at our normal picks, the high tide pick is a little trickier so we ask for ‘adults only’ on that one. We also plan to hold a few more social nights and Mersea island’s biggest EVER quiz night will be happening this Spring. Details tba.
