There are two locations for the Chesil beach clean, both meeting at 11am: • Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Fine Foundation Chesil Beach Centre.

• The former police check point opposite Sailing Academy, Portland - park in the Sailing Academy car park opposite The meeting point for the Ringstead Beach clean is the slipway at 2pm.
