Thank you Elwood volunteers for an amazing start to the year! We had such a great turn out and everyone put in a great effort. The beach needed our TLC after the recent hot weather.
Regardless of the fact that the beach cleaning machines had been out that morning, we still collected over 25kg of rubbish including so many fragments of harmful plastics, cigarette butts, empty bottles etc. This month's star find was a large empty suitcase, which we then used to collect other large pieces of litter.
There is more hot weather to come and our beach will attract many visitors so keep up the good work Elwood crew!
Next clean up is on Saturday 17th February at 9am, meeting on the beach side of Elwood Sailing Club, by the rocks.
The dates and locations of all our 2018 clean ups are now available, as listed on the Elwood page of the Beach Patrol website here https://beachpatrol.com.au/BeachGroups/3184
Also, a big thank you and welcome to the several new volunteers who joined us this time. We're very happy to have you on board!
See you soon.
Beach Patrol Crew
