We were formed in 1927 and currently have 25 members, who are a lively, friendly and active group who enjoy outings. We have adopted a stretch of Silloth West Beach and The Beach Gang clean it regularly. We also carry out surveys for Marine Conservation Trust (see picture of Frances recording a day’s collection). Our Garden Gang maintain the garden in front of the Discovery Centre in Silloth. Our Christmas Lunch Party, held at White Heather Hotel, Kirkbride this year. In 2010 a Book Reading Group was formed.
