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!
