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.

Time to get going for 2018! Our first Beach Clean will be on Sunday 18th March at 11am. As usual with the first of the year we will be covering one of the outer beaches, this time it's to the North. Meet at the turning area beyond the compost site to cover the stretch from the Lathallan Burn northwards. Wear strong shoes, the beach is a bit rocky on this stretch. Lunch will be provided afterwards for our helpers.

Among the things we intend to do this year are improvements at our Compost Site, so if you can help with this we'd love to hear from you.  Compost collections will restart on March 24th and the full set of dates are on the Composting page. You can still sign up for collections, just download a Membership form for 2018 on the Composting page.

If you've got any ideas about projects we can tackle in 2018 let us know!
