Shark on Facebook

Welcome to SHARK

We are a small environmental group based on the North East Scottish coastline village of Johnshaven.  Though small we have a very active membership and are involved in several projects.  The main one is our garden waste recycling project which sees green waste from the village composted at our own compost site. We are also involved in carrying out regular beach cleaning of the shoreline in our village. This website and our Facebook page will tell you what's going on and when.  Minutes of all our meetings are available on the Downloads page.

Well into 2017 now, with the first collection successfully completed. If you haven't signed up for garden waste collections, Membership Forms are available and collection dates can be found on the Composting page.

The first Beach Clean was on Sunday March 19th with 11 happy volunteers. We covered the beach south of Cove Hill to Seagreens. Next one is on 4th June.

We did our annual Johnshaven Village Clean in conjunction with Keep Scotland Beautiful on Saturday 15th April. We had 13 helpers in all and collected a mountain of stuff around the village. Thanks to all of you and thanks to Greggs for the goodies after we finished. Photos on the Village Cleans page.
