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.

Been a while since the site was updated, but I'm sure you keep up with us on Facebook anyway! Here are some updates on 2017 so far.

The Beach Clean on Sunday June 4th was well attended with 18 happy volunteers and 16 bags of rubbish. We covered the beach south of the Harbour along to the Narrows. Next one is on 17th September in conjunction with the Great British Beach Clean.

Shark volunteers helped the good ladies of the gardening group to install a new boat at the top of the road into the village - the old one fell apart when we tried to move it! I'm sure you'll agree that the new boat is an impressive addition and is looking good all now planted up. Thanks to all those who helped on the day.

We'll be running our Village Hall Cafes in conjunction with NEOS this September again. Dates will be confirmed nearer the time.
