Cllr Alex Easton 

‘There is nothing more important than helping to protect our environment and that’s why I felt it was vitally important that I, as an elected politician, did my bit to help clean up our beaches by taking part in the Beach Watch Big Weekend. 

Cllr Peter Weir 

‘Having spent many happy hours in my childhood on our local beaches in North Down, particularly Groomsport, I am aware of both their beauty and the joy that they can bring. Sadly there are those who will be thoughtless and pollute and litter our beaches. We all have a role in this crucial battle, and that is why I am honoured to lend a hand through this initiative to clean up our beaches, and encourage others to volunteer to help us.” 

Cllr Peter Martin 

‘Our environment is our heritage to our children and as an elected representative I am committed to playing my part to protecting and nourishing it. I am very glad that the Maritime Conservation Society have accepted our offer to help with the Big Beach Watch Weekend and this will hopefully enable us to raise the profile of our lovely beaches in Ballyholme and Groomsport ‘

This is a family event and everyone is welcome to attend as long as children are in the company of a responsible adult. We will have all the necessary equipment to carry out our ‘Beach Watch’ and to register as a volunteer please contact Councillor Peter Martin at peter.martin@northdown.gov.uk or for full contact details please visit my website www.pjmartin.org”
