3193 Ricketts Point September Clean

We had some chilly, windy conditions for our clean this month - and a little rain. That didn't stop more than 32 people braving the elements to clean up the beach and carpark around Beaumaris Life Saving Club. Great to see so many kids and local students taking an enthusiastic interest in their beach and bay.

Fathers' Day and still 11 volunteers came along to help collect over 22 kg of litter from the Nature Reserve.
