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.

Updates

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[@]cullercoatscollective.co.uk and we can send you the meeting link.

TRASHMOB Project

How can you help?

Visit our TRASHMOB page for more information, and sign up with your mobile number if you want to be invovled in clearing the ceach on busy days!

This system costs around 6p per message as well as a monthly running fee. We believe that this is worth it if it clears the beach in time for the tide coming in and washing hundreds and thousands of items into the sea should it be left. Going forward we are also looking to provide those who are willing to volunteer their time to help pick up after other people with appropriate equipment, PPE, and incentives as a thank you to ensure that they do not go unthanked or are out of pocket. When this project is up and running we will give TRASHMOB volunteer details of how to access these. For the cost of a cup of coffee we can send a TRASHMOB alert to 50 people.  If you want to help keep this system running going forward please consider dontating through our fundraising page.
