In partnership with the National Trust, Greening Swanage organised a tree giveaway in January 2020. Over 80 small native tree whips were given away to members of the public to plant in their own gardens, including Rowan, crab apple and birch. It was hugely popular, we met lots of lovely people and it was a great opportunity to highlight the importance of trees. If you received one of these trees let us know how you are getting on.

Carnival time in Swanage on the 28 July 2019, saw Litter Free Coast & Sea in the parade with a ‘walking float’ along with members of Sustainable Swanage and their families. Sarah Spurling commented, “We had a great time on our ‘Love our Beach’ walking procession today in Swanage carnival with Litter Free Purbeck, SWANAGE INFORMATION CENTRE and SWANAGE TOWN COUNCIL. Lovely crowd and great atmosphere, perfect for celebrating our coastline…let’s keep it beautiful!” The message was simple ‘Take only Memories, Leave only footprints’ and ‘Have a lovely litter Free Carnival’.
