My Beach, Your Beach

Between 2018 and 2023 the My Beach, Your Beach campaign helped people care for our beaches and bathing waters by raising awareness of actions that everyone can take to help protect the sand and sea.

Campaign beaches

My Beach, Your Beach was in place at seven popular beaches that have faced challenges with bathing water quality. Each one has its own character, history and environment. Find out more about them by clicking on the boxes below:


Enjoy the beach... and care for the sand, sea and the local community

Here are some key things that everyone can do to ensure that our beaches and bathing waters are clean for all to enjoy:

When visiting the beach...

Dog poo: bag it and bin it

If the bin is full, then take it away with you.

Bin your litter: or take it away with you

There is never an excuse for leaving litter for others to clean up.

Don't feed the gulls: leave them be

Attracting gulls to popular beaches by feeding them can result in them disrupting bins, ingesting litter and generally becoming a nuisance for beach goers, as well as harming the gulls themselves.

And for businesses and homes...

Never pour fats, oils or greases down the drain

Only flush the 3Ps: pee, poo and (toilet) paper
