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.

3191 March - Clean Up Australia Day!
Thanks to the 25 Clean Up Australia Day volunteers who helped collect a whopping 46kg of rubbish from the Royal Ave beach in Sandy!  After the storm, the tide was high and the waves choppy, which had a number of us clambering up the rocks with our bags!  A big thank you to all the kids who came today - you should all be proud of yourselves!

Thank you to everyone who came to the final 3191 clean up for 2014 on a hot and sticky morning!  A few enjoyed a cool off in the crystal clear water at the end!  22 bags/8.5kg of rubbish - the weight does not reflect the 100s of pieces of small plastics we found.  Happy Christmas! Happy Holidays!  See you Sun 25 Jan, 2015!

Thank you to all 3191 members who attended today's beach clean in wild windy conditions!  
School holidays and possibly post Grand Final fatigue meant a smaller turnout of about 14.  However, we still managed to collect 14.5kg of rubbish.
The most common items were small plastic bits, glass and wrappers.  
Also, a big thank you to Rotary Sandringham for the sausage sizzle - they have offered to come every month, which is fantastic!

3191 Sandringham - second beach clean yields 35kg!
Last weekend, Sunday 31 August, Sandringham Beach Patrol met for the second time on yet another beautiful sunny morning.  Over 40 volunteers, including lots of eager young children, collected 35kg of rubbish in one hour!  What a happy enthusiastic group we are!  Who would have thought it could be so enjoyable to collect rubbish early on a Sunday morning,  but I can honestly say it was!  And a great sense of satisfaction that we have rescued the beach from all that litter!
