An amazing start to 2018 with our first beach clean at Wells st beach collecting 19 full bags of litter. Welcome to our enthusiastic new members who brought our strength to 31 wonderful volunteers. Welcome also to our new members who have joined us since. Make sure you come up & say hi at our next beach clean!

Despite Council's beach cleaner going through earlier, we still collected 80 recyclables & removed 31kgs of litter off our beach. Great result to keep our environment great!

Our next beach clean is at Long Island beach, near Long Island Tennis Club, cnr Gould st & Nepean Hwy Frankston at 9 am, briefing at 8:50 am

See you on the beach!

Inspired by the amazing effort of our volunteers today, thank you all so much!!! 17 legends removed a massive 45.7kgs of rubbish from Willi beach, including: 261 bottles & cans (25.1kgs worth)!!! half a wheelie bin of plastic wrappers, bags, and other bits of plastic... plus a bucket of cigarettes. Sad that there was so much to collect but great that it's away from our bay!!!

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

Our first clean of the year was to be on a 40 deg C day.  Luckily the heat hadn't risen to its full extent at 9 am.  Still it was quite warm with a stiff warm wind blowing by the end.

Over 30 people came out to clean the First Point beach.   4 new volunteers as well.
