Looking back now, the 2017 Bigscapacleanup week seems an eon away but the picture sums up the week in many ways. Here is a small crab who will go back in the water to grow some more. Likewise, the week saw the teams consolidate their good work and grow the range of skills that divers […]
Santa’s elves are slightly ahead of schedule so we have borrowed them for a week or two to help with a spring clean on the BSCup website: keep your mincers peeled for updates coming down the chimney soon….
So who did all the hard work while we went to the ball..? A big thank you to Steve Jakeway at www.jakeway.co.uk/: you’re a star!

At the end of the last BigScapaCleanUp week there were a couple of themes that bubbled to the surface.

Certainly, it didn’t take more than a single dive for the team to sweep any debris that had accumulated since […]
Well the eager beavers have been hard at work chipping away at the coalface over the winter and created a fresh new swathe of thingsnstuff to keep the website moving forward. Plans are well under way to take the Ghostfishing week forward and tackle the battleships in a new round of cleaning. The battleships are […]
On the back of the last week collecting rubbish in the Flow, we have earmarked a programme to map the rest of the wrecks to gather data for a clear up week in 2017. The Coln is the first of the sites to get a brand new sparkly map, now live and waiting: Get reporting […]
Green is the new colour! We have given the site a bit of a spring clean and a new colour palette: let us know your thoughts..
