In a window of opportunity between yesterday's dusty scorcher and the welcome rain today, 10 volunteers helped out our neighbourhood. Not everyone's in the photo: a couple phoned in what they'd achieved in their own street today - the spirit of our group in action.

624 cigarette butts (almost double the same time last year at this location). There were lots of food and confectionery wrappers and other soft plastics too, These items need to be on the list to be replaced with non-plastic alternatives.
