Our decision to delay our September clean up for one week was a winner; the sun's rays warmed us as we cleaned our beautiful beach!  Thanks to our great team of volunteers the beach was looking cleaner and healthier by 10am.  It was great to see a few new faces and always a pleasure to connect with our regular members too!  Although the weight collected this month was relatively low, we all found that our clean up time was spend picking up little pieces, often tiny fragments of plastics or cigarette butts.  This is the stuff that does so much harm to our marine life, both in the water and the coastal bird life too.  Well done team and fingers crossed for some more beautiful spring sunshine at our October clean up.
