Cleaning Up the Coast for Carnival
On Thursday 13th July, we organised a beach clean along the Swanage coastline ahead of this year’s Swanage Carnival which is set to take place from Saturday 29th July to Saturday 5th August. The carnival theme this year is ‘Under the Sea’, so we thought this would be a perfect opportunity to throw our support behind a sweep of the shoreline. We teamed up with volunteers from Swanage Carnival committee and Swanage Beach Buddies, who aim for a litter free Purbeck.
“We have a very community-minded and environmentally conscious team here at Ellis Jones, and we wanted to do more than just provide financial sponsorship for the carnival. A beach clean was the perfect way to show our support and tie in with the carnival’s Under the Sea theme to mark 2023 being designated as ‘year of the coast’”.
Swanage Carnival will include eight days of fun-filled events and entertainment for local people and visitors, including a procession, aerial displays, stalls, competitions, entertainment, food and drink, games and firework displays.
Carnival Secretary Kevin Langdon said:
“Our thanks go to Ellis Jones for its continued support and the fantastic effort of its team for the beach clean. They’ve helped keep the beach in a pristine condition as we look forward to what we will hope will be another bumper carnival with tens of thousands raised for charity.”
