What started off on a rainy note ended pretty well. Although it was a little rough weather wise, this clean was our best turnout we've had so far. With 22 people we managed to collect 72 glass bottles, 24 plastic bottles and over 600 pieces of plastic. One volunteer even produced an old school desk that was still in decent condition. This was the second time that we have visited this area and it appears that after strong onshore winds we end up seeing more rubbish on the beach. Thank you to everyone who came and especially those who have returned for their second clean, the help is greatly appreciated!
