“I met the wonderful lead of PBCV weeks before she set up the group. I like to think I inspired her; but I think the reality is that she's an amazing eco warrior and cares so much about her local and wider environment that she would have done this without my support. All the same being called her ‘Beach mother’ is a real honour and I will always treasure our relationship. The work she does as a volunteer is inspirational and I hope it rubs off on the many that she comes into contact with”

“Plymouth Environmental Action (PEA) recently invited PBCV to one of our volunteer events to give a presentation on their work; we were all amazed by their dedication to our beautiful beaches and are looking forward to joining them on a beach clean very soon!”

“Dedication and determination whatever the weather! This sums up the PBCV teams. The beaches of Plymouth Sound need all the help they can get and, at the Plastic Free Plymouth campaign, we have been so impressed with the local action. They make so much difference and lead by example…with a smile!”
Jackie Young

“What Plymouth Beach Clean Volunteers have already achieved is nothing short of amazing. I truly hope that they get the recognition and support in the future that is so richly deserved.”
Martin Mills
Our Plymouth
“Plastic pollution means we all need to minimise plastic use and recycle plastic properly. Hopefully one day we won’t need beach clean ups to keep our coast clean but until that day comes initiatives like this are superb and having joined some clean ups myself I know just what good fun and important they are. Get stuck in Plymouth and let’s keep our coast clean.”
Luke Pollard

“Brilliant work Oleta! Very proud of you and all your efforts in setting up this group.”
