๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸšฃOur seas and rivers are under threat. Join our Paddle-Out Protests on Saturday 18th May and take a stand against the sewage polluters. 2024 is the year for change ๐Ÿšฃ๐ŸŒŠ

๐Ÿ•— Time: Meet at 9 am to be on the water by 9.30 am

๐Ÿ“Location: Seven Sister Canoe Centre, Seaford, BN25 4AD

We will be paddling from the Barn down to the Beach at Cuckmere Haven. Some people may choose to walk down instead. We plan to get out at the beach to wave our placards and take photos and maybe talk to some of the people around if they are interested to know why we are there.ย 

We should be back at the Barn by around 1pm.

 

Members can use Club boats and paddleboards.

 

๐Ÿ›ถ What is a Paddle Out Protest

Paint those placards. Grab those rafts, kayaks and SUPs. Whether you get in the water to paddle out / paddle in or protest with us from the shore, we will be coming together for a national day of action and showing water companies and regulators that we will not stand for another summer of swimming in sh*t.

Paddle-outs will involve local communities coming together to protest in the very space we want to protect โ€“ the water. Whether youโ€™re planning to paddle out in the ocean, a river or protest with your toes in the sand, everyone is welcome to join in, in a way that suits them. Letโ€™s stand together against sewage pollution.

 

๐ŸŒŸ Why Are we protesting

2024 is the year for change.

With a general election likely to happen, we have a real opportunity to build on the momentum and public outrage over sewage pollution from last year. 2024 is also the year that water companies and regulators are setting out their investment plans (PR24) for the next five years (2025 โ€“ 2030) which means it is the perfect time to ramp up the pressure.

We need the water companies, the regulators and the Government to listen to what we have to say. Enough is enough.

 

๐ŸŽ‰ I can’t swim / don’t have a kayak or a board, Can I still join in?

YES! You donโ€™t have to get in the water to join in with our national day of action.

Whether you protest from the shore OR paddle out, we want people from all corners of the nation to come together and show the polluters the tidal wave of support for an end to sewage pollution. We are more than surfers, more than sewage.

You can paddle out on a raft, row in a boat or swim with a float โ€“ how you chose to get in the water is up to you!
