3191 April clean up
Great clean up last Sunday at the very picturesque end of Sandringham beach, near Red Bluff cliffs.  Several new faces which was great! We picked up 14kg of rubbish, which is amazing since most of us felt like the most common item was broken polystyrene, straws and cigarette butts.  Not great for the weight stats!  Heading in to the cooler weather now, so hope you still feel inspired to keep cleaning!  We'll be there, rain or shine, but maybe not hail!

Thanks to everyone who helped clean the Hampton dog beach at the end of January.  Not a lot of big stuff, but lots of small plastics and wrappers.  Not a big weight haul, but that doesn't always reflect the litter we find.  Enjoyed a coffee together at the SHQ cafe.  Next clean up delayed by 1 week for Clean Up Australia Day-Sunday 6 March.

Warmer weather encouraging lots of volunteers to clean Sandringham Beach.  15 beach patrollers collected over 44kg of rubbish!  A lot was found stuffed between the rocks on the groyne - fishermen?  As always, plastic in all its shapes, sizes and colours, the main problem.

THANK YOU to a small group of 3191ers who collected 15.25 kg of rubbish from Sandringham beach, directly below the Red Bluff Cliffs.   A seemingly endless amount of small plastic pieces, bottle lids, straws, wrappers and lollipop sticks is knotted together with other debris.  There is much more still there, so please get down this week, if you have some spare time.
