2018

 

The Carrick Castle Beach Clean was carried out on Sunday 20th May 2018 between 11 am and 12 noon. We had such good support this year from 13 local residents it took a lot less than an hour. The equivalent of seven full bags of rubbish were collected by seven boat club members (Jai & Vonna Cowper-Smith, Ian & Dorothy Nicholson, Graham Mathie, Bill Miller and Douglas Locke) and six non-boat club members (Cecilia Ferguson, John Lanigan, Donatella Peretti, Jean Shepheard, Arthur Fairfull & Jane Richardson). The amount of rubbish collected in Carrick Castle was about the same as the last three years (7 full bags each) which was an improvement from 2014 when 14 bags were collected.

2017

The Carrick Castle Beach Clean was carried out on Sunday 5th March 2017 between 11 am and 12 noon. The equivalent of seven full bags of rubbish were collected by seven boat club members (Jai & Vonna Cowper-Smith, Ian & Dorothy Nicholson, Jim Graham with Cloe, Bill Miller and Douglas Locke) and three non-boat club members (Cecilia Ferguson, Peter Matthews & Liz Evans). Jimmy Sim very kindly took all the rubbish bags to the Lochgoilhead car park to join up with the rubbish collected on the Lochgoilhead beaches for the council to collect. The amount of rubbish collected in Carrick Castle was the same as the last two years (7 full bags each) which was an improvement from 2014 when 14 bags were collected. This weekend tied up with the British Spring Clean Weekend.
