Take it Home with You
Rubbish in the sea is a serious problem with some 20,000 tonnes a year entering the North Sea alone. Worldwide, more than one million birds and 100,000 marine animals die each year from becoming entangled in or ingesting litter. So please help by making sure you take your rubbish away with you at the end of the day.

Man’s Best Friend
With fantastic places to walk your dog, please be mindful of wildlife and other people, keeping your dog under control at all times.

Signs will be located at all these sites with maps indicating the ban area which must be obeyed.
