With the temperature at 8.4 degrees celsius, it was a great turnout as always by our team of dedicated volunteers. In all, 40 people made it along which included a team of 6 divers from Diveline Aus here in Frankston, joining us as part of PADI's Womens Dive Day.

Not deterred by the cold, the team got in and made a big impact on the litter, a lot of which was washed in by winter weather, but still, so much was left by people who seem to mindlessly leave their trash behind.

All in all, it was another great team effort and an absolute testament to the our volunteers determination to make a difference to not only Frankston's shoreline, but Port Phillip and its marine life.

Our next clean up will be at Frankston Pier, Saturday, 19th of August, 9:50am Safety Briefing ahead of a 10:00am Clean Up. We can't wait to see you there.

As always, a big thanks to our volunteers, sponsors and supporters, without whom, we could not continue to do the great work we do.
