Want to try paddle boarding and do your bit to tackle plastic pollution? Join us on Plastic Patrol on the Nottingham Canal on 30th June for an epic day of paddle boarding and litter picking,
All our clean ups are completely FREE and no experience is required. Our instructors will show you paddling basics and provide a safety brief before accessing the water. We’ll also supply all equipment – from paddle board, buoyancy aid, litter pick and bucket – all you need to do is turn up ready and willing to get stuck in.
BOOK HERE TO SECURE YOUR SPOT: https://plasticpatrol.co.uk/clean-ups/
Do you want to get involved but would rather keep your feet on dry land? Join us by foot from the towpaths – everyone is welcome and every piece of plastic waste collected matters.
Have you got your own paddle board, canoe, kayak, water bike, boat or any other form of water transport? Great, bring it along and join us on the water. No need to sign up, just let us know you’re intending to come and make sure you have valid insurance to paddle.
*NOTE* paddle boarding sessions are for over 16s only. Children are welcome to litter pick from the towpaths under supervision of an adult.
WHAT TO WEAR PADDLE BOARDING:
Loose, light clothes (gym wear is fine).
Trainers or non-slip shoes are also good, but these might get wet.
Towel and spare clothes (unlikely you’ll fall in – but just in case)
WHERE TO MEET:
You’ll receive an email confirmation ahead of the day with full details but the location is marked on the website. Look out for the Plastic Patrol flags, banners and brightly coloured paddle boards on the day too – you can’t miss us.
WHAT TO BRING:
All our events are single use plastic free so we ask that you bring water in a reusable bottle – it’s thirsty work.
Please also bring your phone to log any plastic you find and a dry bag if you have one.
Note that all events are entirely voluntary – just a group of like minded individuals coming together for a good cause.
We operate on an entirely not for profit basis so donations are hugely appreciated. Your contributions will be pumped back into running more of these clean ups for free, for everyone, forever.
