Council joins forces with Beach Buddies in Love Where You Live initiative


Douglas Borough Council is joining forces with Beach Buddies as the Manx charity urges two schools in Douglas to ‘Love Where You Live’, the Keep Britain Tidy campaign urging communities to come together on volunteer projects aimed at respecting and protecting their local environment.


On March 23 Beach Buddies will be working alongside pupils from Anagh Coar and Manor Park schools to clean up their school grounds, supported by volunteers from the Council and Isle of Man Friends of the Earth.


The following day, March 24, will see Beach Buddies and their supporters join the pupils’ parents and the wider Pulrose and Anagh Coar community on a litter-clearing session.


Beach Buddies is looking to expand the project to cover every school across the Island, asking all 15,000 school children and their families to take part during the ‘Year of Our Island 2018’.


Beach Buddies’ founder Bill Dale said: ‘The aim of the project is to set a precedent in the British Isles by engaging with everyone in the community across the Island to take part in two major events each year, to clear up existing litter hotspots and then to keep on top of the problem regularly in the future.’


Isle of Man Friends of the Earth coordinator Pete Christian said: ‘Isle of Man Friends of the Earth are delighted to support this joint initiative in taking practical steps to improve one important aspect of our environment.’


Environmental Services Committee Chair Councillor Ritchie McNicholl said: ‘We’re pleased to be joining Beach Buddies in this initiative, as it builds on the Council’s long-running series of ‘Big Tidy Up’ campaigns and complements our support of Love Where You Live, which we launched in October last year.


‘Litter is very much a community problem that demands a community response. Our street cleansing teams do all they can but the Council alone cannot rid the town of litter; to achieve that, it has to be a shared endeavour.


‘It’s about changing attitudes and behaviour, and encouraging communities to develop a strong sense of civic pride. Initiatives such as this led by Beach Buddies can help to raise awareness and make a very real difference - hopefully not just for the life of the campaign, but for the long-term future of our town and our island.’

Douglas Borough Council Waste Department advise that there could be some disruption to refuse and kerbside collections this week due to the predicted weather conditions. Decisions to delay the service are never taken lightly, updates will be issued when available. Should you have any queries please call 696445.
