3191 April clean up
Great clean up last Sunday at the very picturesque end of Sandringham beach, near Red Bluff cliffs.  Several new faces which was great! We picked up 14kg of rubbish, which is amazing since most of us felt like the most common item was broken polystyrene, straws and cigarette butts.  Not great for the weight stats!  Heading in to the cooler weather now, so hope you still feel inspired to keep cleaning!  We'll be there, rain or shine, but maybe not hail!

Check out the beautiful blue skies and the gorgeous 3198 BP volunteer group! Another fabulous meet up, we cleaned approx 8kg of litter off the beach, a bizillion (yep this is an accurate measurement) of nurdles are gone and we all had a nice morning enjoying the sunshine.

Thank you to all that attended, we look forward to seeing you at the next clean on Sunday May 15th at Seaford Pier.
