Clean Jurassic Coast joins Portland Week!
Portland is an amazing place to explore our coastline and Portland Week celebrates how special our seas are, for people and nature. CJC will be joining the festivities from the 23rd to the 29th of August, so come along and say hi!
7 days of family activities including SUP, swimming and beach cleaning. There will be live music and lots of things to do, in and out of the water!
Portland Week is more than just a jam-packed week of floatable fun though, there’s a serious message too. Our seas and marine wildlife are choking on thousands of tons of plastic pollution and we need your help to do something about it. Portland Week are supporting Clean Jurassic Coast during the week, raising funds and awareness so we can help keep the coast clean of litter.

This year’s Portland Week event was truly brilliant and the CJC stall proved itself popular with plenty of locals and visitors chatting to us about the ways they are helping keep our beaches tidy and wildlife healthy.
In between chatting to enthusiastic beach-goers, CJC founder Roy Beal offered himself as kayak safety for the water-based events – affectionately named a ‘Merwrangler’!
The team met some amazing and like-minded souls along the way, including mermaids, Swim The Big Blue 2 Team and One Ocean Crew. We bookended the week with beach cleans and led a few litter picks in between – the rubbish collected is featured in a photo below. Thanks to all the beach cleaners and attendees who made this a very special week!
