3199 Frankston Beach Patrol July Clean Up
A great day was had by all as 3199 Frankston Beach Patrol ascended on Frankston beach today for their second clean up day.



Working between Kannanook Creek and Oliver's Hill, part of the team made a dedicated effort today to tackle the rocks near the entrance to the Oliver's Hill car park while others continued along the beach.



Despite the forecast of showers earlier in the week, the weather was glorious with the shining down upon the group of 15 dedicated volunteers. It was also great to see some familiar faces once again whilst welcoming a few new ones as well.



Following the successful clean up, about 10 or so members made their way over the highway to the ever popular Aum Shanti café for a very well deserved drink and for those with an appetite, a bite to eat.



Frankston can certainly be equally as proud of the effort made by the group today as I am, the result of which are listed.
