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.

A big thank you to Emma and Craig for hosting our volunteer barbecue on Sunday 26th. We all had a great time. No thanks to whoever organises the weather, it rained most of the afternoon, but Craig valiantly stood outside and cooked while we sat in the lovely conservatory!

Now it's time for another Beach Clean. Sunday 2nd September, 11.30 at the South end of the Harbour. See our poster.

We're going to be getting involved with a new Aberdeenshire project called Reuse Connect, which will hopefully link up the many initiatives like ours going on across the Shire. More details to follow. They can be contacted via their Facebook page at RecyclingAndWasteAberdeenshire.

If you've got any ideas about other projects we should be getting involved with let us know!
