Exciting half term event in Looe. Join us to throw jelly at the Seaweed Jelly Bonanza on May 28th to launch this year’s ‘Throw Jelly Not Balloons’ campaign, aimed at preventing water-balloon litter entering the sea at water regattas across the county and beyond.
The highlight of the afternoon will be throwing jelly made from seaweed at kayakers and paddle boarders in the Looe River as a rehearsal for Looe’s annual Raft Race on Sunday June 9. A book reading, marine arts and crafts and a jelly sensory play bath activity are part of the afternoon ‘takeover’ event (12.30-4.30 pm) at the Old Sardine Factory Heritage Centre on West Looe Quay, designed to help visitors learn more about the issues of marine plastic and share the campaign message #throwjellynotballoons.
