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 eleven of us engaged in running activities.  The core members are:

  • Kate Goodheart – committee member
  • Marjorie Jenn – committee member
  • Kay Jones – committee member
  • Rob Jones – committee member
  • Diane Morris – committee member
  • Barbara Ramsbottom – chairperson, social media (Facebook and Twitter)
  • Dave Rawlinson – social media (Instagram), photographer
  • Diane Roscoe – treasurer
  • Pierce Starre – committee member, website management
  • Carole Watson – secretary
  • Neil Watson – committee member
  • Val and Dave Talbot – founders, honorary members

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/school beach cleans. Occasionally, we join other beach cleaning or ‘Friends Of’ groups helping them keep their areas/parks clean.
