We were thrilled that a team from Bluebells School were able to participate in Watamu Marine Association's ‘Turn the Tide on Trash’ day, 17th September 2016. They were the ‘littlest’ volunteers on the beach – but little people have nimble fingers – and they all made a worthy contribution to the final total of 4,699kgs of marine debris that was collected from the beaches.
Great effort Team BUSHBELLS – pictured here with Sammy – our head tailor (holding the dolphin), together with Lilian, Ruth and Rahema, our other tailors, and Mwanahamisi and Rose from Bluebells School.
Our grateful thanks to a very generous donation from Vicki James from Gloucestershire – who kindly paid for this educational trip for the senior children. The children said that they loved being part of the WMA community and International Coastal Clean-up Day, - and learnt much about the impact that waste and marine debris has on their beaches!
Our thanks too, to WMA for all their energies and showing how by working together, we can all secure the future of Watamu as a natural asset for all and for shared economic prosperity.
