About Us

The Penllech Coastcare Group  is a voluntary Keep Wales Tidy group . The group was established in 2002 with help with KWT funding. The group now has over 200 registered on its mailing list and is open to all  who would like to be involved.  


The aims of the group are to encourage local and visitor involvement; increase public awareness of the the effects of marine litter, pollution, and other threats to the coasts natural beauty and wildlife both above and below the  water.


The group networks  with other local groups ; it aims to proactively involve walkers, climbers, shore fishermen, and those making more of a splash in the water : surfers, canoeists, sailors,  fishermen, and divers.  We aim to demonstrate how we can all be  part of the solution to the problem of marine litter.
