Celebration of New Information at Rossall Beach
May 18 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Rossall Beach Residents & Community Group invite you to the celebration of new information at Rossall Beach with the completion of new panels at Rossall Beach.
Friday 18 May at 2.30pm on the promenade opposite The Venue
Join us on the promenade for a short celebration event and reveal of one of the new information boards, followed by refreshments at The Venue. Everyone welcome, if you missed the Recruitment Event earlier in the year why don’t you come along to this?
Five new information boards are being installed on the seafront, thanks to two grants which we have recently secured.
The first successful award is for £6,000 from United Utilities managed by the Community Foundation for Lancashire. An additional sum of £4,000 has been awarded by the Lancashire Environmental Fund.
The five new information boards will join the five existing ones, leading people in a trail along Rossall Beach from the end of the new sea defences to the Five Bar Gate near Rossall School.
The new boards explain various aspects of the beach environment.
– bathing waters and the work which is being done to make the sea cleaner,
– the damage which plastic does in a marine environment.
– why the pebbles are an important part of the sea defences,
– find out about some of the creatures which live there.
– how you can play a part in looking after the marine environment
Our original set of boards include:
– the shells, plants and birds to be found on the beach.
– the offshore windfarm and how it was cabled to shore through our beach.
The first ones were installed in 2012 and it’s amazing how many people still stop every day to read their information. Knowing how people love to learn about the world around them we felt that we should share more of the story of our beach environment.
Members of the group have been involved in deciding what should be included and researching the new information. We’re really looking forward to seeing them completed.
