Scottish Sea farms at Barcaldine are inviting people to join its Great Beach Clean efforts this Saturday, September 21.

The team at Scottish Sea Farms’ new freshwater hatchery  on the banks of Loch Creran will be out in force  to clear up Teithil Beach and are hoping people will turn out to help.

Leading the call for local volunteers is Ewen Leslie, Freshwater Engineer with Scottish Sea Farms and organiser of the local beach clean said: ‘There’s no need to bring anything with you. We’ll supply high visibility safety vests, gloves, pickers and bags. All volunteers need to do is make sure they’re dressed appropriately for whatever the weather throws at us on the day.’

Meet at the hatchery’s car park, across from Barcaldine Primary School, at 11am for a short safety briefing  before kits are handed out.

Anyone planning on going along should email  by Friday 20 September.
