Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) campaigners take to the road later this month for a western seaboard leg of The Grassroots Tour.
Each year SAS plan a week-long tour that visits key watersport sites up and down Great Britain. Over the last few years they’ve been the length and breadth of the UK and met some great people that are passionate about protecting and improving their coastal environment for all to enjoy.
This year’s tour takes place from the 12th – 16th May and the venues are as follows:
12th May: The White Lion, North Street, BRAUNTON, EX33 1AJ
13th May: Glan-Y-Mor Inn, Caerfi Road, ST DAVIDS, SA62 6QT
14th May: The Harbour Hotel, ABERSOCH, Pwllheli, LL53 7HR
15th May: The Centre For Contemporary Arts, 350 Sauchiehall Street, GLASGOW, G2 3JD
16th May: The Watersports Centre, East Strand, PORTRUSH
Talks run from 7pm – 10pm.
With our watery 'playgrounds' under threat, find out how issues like climate change and marine litter are choking our blue planet, from the clean water campaigners at SAS.
Discover the key pollution issues of tomorrow, learn more about the behind the scenes creative campaigning that's getting results and watch an inspiring environmental surf documentary!
Richard Hardy, SAS Campaigns Director says: “If there's one talk you go to this year as a 'recreational water user' then this should be it! (Even it's 6 foot and offshore!)”
This year’s tour is supported by Patagonia Footwear, who will be raffling off a pair of Patagonia Shoes each night. They’ll also be giving away a brand new Eco-board at the end of May to one lucky person who makes it along to one of the tour nights.
