How it went

Early on 19th June volunteers from Cullercoats Ambassadors, the Co-op, Cullercoats Coffee and the community gathered to tackle a specific area in Cullercoats.   For three hours volunteers tackled some large brick planters that had been overtaken with weeds and the fenced park area to prepare them for the next phase of our Cullercoats Green Spaces Project.  Volunteers also litter picked, swept, wiped and brushed the streets and roads around these areas.

The weather was kind to us with the sun shining throughout the time and there was a great community atmosphere. People stopped and chatted and others picked up a brush and joined in. This was just the first phase for the planters and fenced area and more work will be taking place in the weeks and months ahead to smarted up these areas.

Cullercoats Green Spaces

Cullercoats Collective: Our Green Spaces are just as important as our Blue!

We’ve had a lot of interest from our Community Engagement for Cullercoats Collective to look into our Green Spaces, as part of Cullercoats’ Eco and Environment aspect and our Pride of Place strategy arms.

Cullercoats has a lot of great areas of interest: from the dunes and areas around the slopes leading onto Cullercoats Bay full of weeds and rubbish, to neglected planters outside of estates such as John street and Cullercoats Metro Station.

Cullercoats Collective can help facilitate willing volunteers and make these ideas a reality.


We are planning a meeting via zoom with those who expressed interest into community gardening on Wednesday 5 May 2021 6pm. If you would like to attend this meeting, then please get in touch with us at environment[@] and we can send you the meeting link.
