Message in a Bottle at Reculver

Local litter action group 'Shore' is a load of Rubbish! is still going strong, and their project for 2011 is Message in a Bottle.

With the help of two local schools (Westmeads Whitstable and St Stephens Canterbury) they are constructing a full-sized beach hut from recycled materials, including 2 litre plastic bottles filled with beachcombed litter and facts about marine litter. Message in a Bottle is now on at:

Reculver Visitor Centre open Thursday-Monday 11am-5pm till 29th August, on display are:

  • a Bottle Beach Hut, made of 2 litre bottles filled with beach litter,
  • a bottle top deckchair made up of 560 bottle tops threaded onto 40 metres of cord, and
  • a Mermaid made from crisp packets, balloon litter and recycled items!
  • More details below.
