Poole Harbour Festival keeps it clean in the summertime

Determined to recycle, re-use and reduce all forms of waste, Poole Harbour Festival has organised a special beach clean on 8 July.

Festival organisers are calling for volunteers to gather at Baiter Park on Sunday at 10am to pick up litter and debris from the water’s edge of Parkstone Bay, past the festival site and down to Poole Quay.

“The whole reason for staging the festival is to show our wonderful town in the best light possible,” says festival organiser, Ben Dyas.

“We all know how dangerous plastics and other forms of waste are for our coastal waters and shoreline so if we’re able in some small way to help keep them clean, then of course we’re more than happy to.”

Ben is calling on Poole Harbour Festival fans to bring their families along and take part in a fun day out with a serious message. Beach cleaners are advised to bring their own gloves, but refreshments will be provided.

With 30 live acts on three stages, a world of great street food, free children’s entertainment, local crafts and a rare full band show by 1970s icons Mungo Jerry, whose singer Ray Dorset lives in Westbourne, Poole Harbour Festival is a treat for all the family.

The event will take place at Harbourside Park on 27-29 July. Poole Harbour Festival opens at 5pm on Friday, noon on Saturday and 11am on Sunday.
