Beach Buddies joins forces, for the first time, with the newly-created group Footpath Friends for a volunteer event at Port Mooar, Maughold, on Sunday morning, July 12.

The normal beach cleaning event will take place on the coastline all around the area, while volunteers for Footpath Friends will tackle a damaged footpath on the Raad ny Foillan.

A landslide has made the footpath difficult to use, and will repaired by volunteers, plus cutting back of some overgrown sections.

The sessions both begin at 10.30am, finishing by midday. New volunteers - especially for Footpath Friends - will be made very welcome.

â?¢ Beach Buddies is sponsored by FIM Capital and receives annual funding from DEFA.
