The Marine Conservation Society has put together a campaign to help keep British beaches clean. Last Friday Seasalt headed to Swanpool Beach in Falmouth to take part in the ‘Great British Beach Clean’.

We met with several members of the public who came to help, including possibly the youngest member of any beach clean yet!

Armed with gloves, bags and grabbers we scoured the beach picking up rubbish.

We want to say a heartfelt thank you to those who turned out to help, and a huge thanks to Swanpool Beach Café for supporting us and for the yummy hot chocolates!

The Great British Beach Clean

We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be donning our best stripes and fluorescent jackets and hitting Swanpool Beach to join in with the Marine Conservation Society’s Great British Beach Clean on Friday 19th September.

The initiative aims to get the seaside back to its litter free glory days and we can’t wait to get litter picking!

As well as the staff from our design studio and Falmouth & Penryn shops we’re throwing the invitation open to the public. Here are a few great reasons why you should you get involved:

  • Clean beaches could save the lives of some of our best-loved marine wildlife.
  • Clean beaches will protect our little ones when they are building sand castles.
  • Clean beaches will show the world what’s really great about the British seaside.

If you’d like to offer a helping hand, please email marketing@seasaltcornwall.co.uk and we’ll get you signed up.

We hope to see you on the beach!

Falmouth Tall Ships 2014

posted on September 1st, 2014 by Laura Ellis

The Seasalt team were out in force enjoying the festivities of Falmouth Tall Ships 2014 this weekend. Some of us took to high land to get a view across the bay, others climbed aboard their boats to join in the Parade of Sail and others donned their best sailor stripes to work in our Falmouth shop. Wherever we were, we had a camera close to hand and here’s a gallery of some of our favourite moments from the regatta weekend.

The Tall Ships Have Arrived

Tall Ships

The Tall Ships have arrived and we can’t wait to get out of the office and enjoy the fun.

We’ve put together a little guide for what’s going on around Falmouth so you can make the most of Tall Ships 2014!

Today (28th August) is the first day of the regatta. The tall ships are open to the public until 7:30pm, so you can climb aboard and have a look around the ships. There’s also live music and entertainment around the town, as well as exhibitions and displays at the National Maritime Museum, Falmouth Art Gallery and the Princess Pavilion. There’s also lots of children’s activities throughout the town, including art and storytelling at the Maritime Museum.

Friday 29th August - the ships are open to the public again, and as well as children’s activities, exhibitions and displays around the town, Friday is also the day of the inter-ship crew sports competitions that will take place on Gyllyngvase Beach. These are followed by the crew parading through the town in imaginative fancy dress, ending at Events Square for the prize giving ceremony.

The festivities continue through Saturday 30th August with the day ending in a spectacular firework display.

The ships are closed to the public on Sunday 31th August as the crews prepare to sail. The Parade of Sail starts at 11am and will see the ships leaving the harbour and making their way along past the beaches to the starting line off Rosemullion Head. There’s live music and entertainment in the town while everyone gets ready for the start of the race at about 4pm.

The boats will race from Falmouth to Greenwich, London, where they are expected to arrive on the 5th September.

We wish them all the best of luck, and are looking forward to joining in the celebrations.

If you’re in Falmouth to watch the races, don’t forget to pop in to our Falmouth store and say hello!
