Yorkshire Wildlife Trust calls for volunteers to help with an extensive clean up operation at Spurn National Nature Reserve following the tidal surges on the 5th and 6th December 2013.

Trust officers have faced a difficult few weeks dealing with the aftermath of the devastating storm which hit Yorkshire’s east coast earlier in the month. Whilst the nature reserve remains closed to the public the Trust is holding six clean up events throughout January on the 11th, 12th, 18th, 19th, 25th and 26th from 10am until 3pm and is inviting everyone to get involved.

Regional Director for Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, Terry Smithson said: ‘I couldn’t believe my eyes when I visited Spurn; a new landscape has emerged following the tidal surge in addition to all manner of litter and debris. We are asking everyone who loves Spurn to come and help us with what will be the largest litter picking challenge we have ever faced.’

If you would like to take part then please contact the Trust to book onto a clean up event. You can call the Trust on 01904 659570 or email

Terry continued: ‘We are committed to Spurn’s future and in addition to our investments in the site, we support research projects into its ecology and geology: for example, Tom Holmes and Dr Katherine Selby (Environment Department) at the University of York are using Spurn as a case study to examine the effect of storms on coastal environments and communities, taking sediment samples from the peninsula to identify how the coast has responded in the past.’

‘The Trust has been working incredibly closely with the tenants and contractors on site. The site remains hazardous and will be closed to the public until further notice. The Blue Bell car park remains flooded and the Trust asks that people avoid visiting the area for now so as not to obstruct the clean up operation.’
