Glad to be in Arbroath to launch this year’s Angus Coastal Festival (13- 23rd Sept) with its bio-diverse programme of events, covering all the things I love and enjoy about working within the Scottish Littoral zones, from the geology of cliffs, rocks and pebbles, to investigating rock pools, identifying seaweeds, coastal plants, butterflies and bird life. And importantly connecting and working with people who care and want to help to make our marine environment healthy and sustainable.
Over 12 beach cleans are taking place, already tonnes have been removed from Arbroath beaches and more bottles saved by the Ladyloan Primary School with Turning the Plastic Tide and Our East Haven volunteers for the Angus #LitterCUBES. 60 eager pupils joined me to learn more about sculpture, plastic as a material and its origin in oil and energy. I am asking Festival goers to join me today Saturday 14th threading and weaving the next #LitterCUBES at the Arbroath Signal Tower from fishing net and rope. All welcome.
