We had some chilly, windy conditions for our clean this month - and a little rain. That didn't stop more than 32 people braving the elements to clean up the beach and carpark around Beaumaris Life Saving Club. Great to see so many kids and local students taking an enthusiastic interest in their beach and bay.

A small crew today removed 114kilos of litter from the streets and carpark around Werribee Train Station. Thank you Arnold, Peter, Cathy, Lisa, Brenda & Luciana for helping to shift 4 shopping trolleys (all taken back to their various stores), a massive amount of op-shop gear that was dumped outside the charity bins (that was not suitable for those particular bins), some e-waste, furniture, around 2000 cigarett butts, a few dozen straws and 55 bottles and cans. If you think we enjoy doing this - WRONG. This site is a disgrace and despite some improvements, the area continues to be trashed. We can do better Werribee!! And happy birthday Ted - 13 today! Hope you have a great day.
