Nature Walks – our resident bird expert – John Done – leads seasonal nature walks around the village, along the coastal Path, and through the CarlingNose Nature Trail. These usually leave from the War Memorial (near the FerryBridge Hotel.)
Talks – each month, we try to have a talk from a local expert on some subject related to village life.
The Village Show – runs at the end of August in the Community Centre
Beach Clean – Beachwatch is a nation-wide beach litter clean-up and survey, which has been organised by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) every year since 1993. Beaches around the UK coast are surveyed by volunteers for the quantities and types of litter that are collected on and above the strandline.
The MCS Beachwatch is held on the third weekend in September every year, representing the UK in the International Coastal Cleanup, involving over 100 countries and thousands of volunteers worldwide over the same weekend.
We understand that the survey completed at Port Laing, North Queensferry, is one of only four beaches in the UK to have taken part every year since the inception of the Beachwatch event.
Beach litter pick-ups are also organised at other times of the year.
