Who we are

Friends Of Crosby Beach was first formed in 2017 by Val and Dave Talbot.  Since then, the group gained new core members and now there are nine of us engaged in running activities.  The core members are:

  • Barbara Ramsbottom – chairperson, beach clean organiser, social media, website and campaigns
  • Val Talbot – secretary, beach clean organiser and campaigns
  • Diane Roscoe – treasurer, beach clean organiser and campaigns
  • Dave Rawlinson – committee member, beach clean organiser, social media, campaigns, photographer
  • Dave Talbot – beach clean organiser
  • Carole Watson – beach clean organiser, committee member and campaigns
  • Neil Watson – beach clean organiser, committee member and campaigns
  • Kate Goodheart – beach clean organiser, committee member and campaigns
  • Rob Jones – beach clean organiser, committee member and campaigns

We are all volunteers. In our spare time we go out and do our own solo litter picks on the beach.  We also organise a “once a month” public beach clean and “bespoke” corporate beach cleans (both currently suspended due to Covid restrictions). Occasionally, we join other beach cleaning or ‘Friends Of’ groups helping them keep their areas/parks clean.
