Browne's Beach 2019

Clean Up Barbados Campaign

Every year, since 2013, St. Gabriel’s has joined with The Future Centre Trust of Barbados to participate in this event.  It is held on the third Saturday of September.  The aim of the event is to help clean up as well to help raise the profile of illegal dumping, littering and its impacts to physical and mental health and highlight opportunities for recycling. 

The response from the St. Gabriel’s family is overwhelming and every year of participation we have won the prize for the largest group, usually over 120 people!

Not only is it a wonderful opportunity to teach our children the importance of proper disposal of litter, the fragility of our marine life and good citizenship skills but it is a time when new friendships are formed and a good time is had by all in a relaxing environment.  For several years now we have been tasked with cleaning up Browne’s Beach so after the ‘work’ (which takes less than two hours!) everyone is able to relax on the beach and in the sea.
