Clean seas should be a right not a privilege. With the Isle of Wight featuring in 12 out of 83 worst beaches in the UK for sewage discharge in 2022 it is time we put action in to fix the issue.

Sewage in our seas affects all of us on the Island, at least indirectly. Who wants to look out on our stunning coastline and think, mmm I wonder how much sewage has gone in today? No! It should be, ‘wow that’s amazing let’s take our friends and family to the beach and enjoy the sea’. It is a vital space for so many residents and groups who bathe or recreationally use the waters and beaches all year round.

SAS call for on their Dirty Money Campaign Dirty Money Petition – Surfers Against Sewage ( “Enough is enough. We can’t stand by and watch another summer of sewage, but it will take all of us speaking out to stop it.”

Join the Paddle Protest on 20th May at Midday At Appley Tower, Ryde from 12pm to 1pm.

Please come along, bring placards or other fun props, surf boards, paddle boards, rafts or just be on the beach and perhaps tip your toes in the water.

Anyone is welcome and Ryde is a fantastically accessible beach. Let’s show Southern Water we are the community that care and are ready to take action together.
