Andy Dinsdale, who leads the following events, is encouraging volunteers to join him and help to achieve a cleaner environment. He will provide the main equipment but asks that individuals wear sturdy footwear, waterproofs and wrap-up warm. He explains that the Strandliners project is to increase awareness of the environment through citizen science and community engagement.

Andy is a platinum champion and a Points of Light Award winner. For further details he would be happy to talk to anyone interested at the Love Our Rother fair on Saturday, February 18. It is a free event with many stands and activities. He would love to see some volunteers to actually help on the day.
