We had a massive turn-out on the first day of Spring with lots of helpers from Geocaching of Victoria and Altona Primary. 58 volunteer altogether managed a respectable 25kgs of rubbish and a record-breaking 4,000 cigarette butts. It was clean when we started, but pristine when we left. 55 minutes of good weather and 5 minutes of blisterting rain andh ail at the end saw us beat a hasty retreat. This hadn't happened for 13 cleans in a row, so we can hardly complain about a great community effort once more.
