3018Beachpatrol Altona Beaches

Altona Beach Patrol      Watch our Launch Video.  It's great!

 

Altona BeachPatrol is looking for a new leader.  Our current one had to step down.  Are you wanting to be seen as a leader in you community?  There are many Altona volunters looking to help clean the beaches once a month.   It takes about 4-5 hours a month and can make a big difference to the Altona beaches and township?  All training provided. Contact admin@beachpatrol.com.au 

 

Altona Beach forms the southern boundary of the town of Altona, with the Esplanade paralleling the beach. The beach is crossed by the 500 m long Altona Pier. The beach runs roughly east-west for 3 km from the point at Frazer Reserve, past the town to the western drainage channel, called Laverton Creek. There are also picnic areas in foreshore reserves at either end of the beach. The beach is widest near the pier, but narrows west of the groyne, which is located 100 m past the pier. Intertidal and subtidal sand flats front the beach, requiring a long wade to reach deep water.

There's the pier, the park, the white sand and long sweeps of panoramic beach. What's not to like about Altona?. This has to be the undiscovered gem of Melbourne.. Lots of cafes. The family friendly outdoor recreation destination for Melbourne

3018 BP 2 February Clean up by 3018@beachpatrol.com.au

Excellent haul and turnout today. With 26 wonderful volunteers we collected 56(!!) kilos of rubbish and at least 100 containers and botttles and 1,200 cigarette butts. Thanks everyone!

 

We were hoping to have a new coordinator start, but that didn’t happen, so now we’re looking for a new coordinator again. Feel free to get in touch, we’ve got everything sorted for a smooth hand over.

 

Talks with council about a storage location are in the final stages and we’re still trying to get used to the new and more restrictive recycling scheme. 

Altona BP 3018 8 December Clean up by 3018@beachpatrol.com.au

19kgs of litter and 600 cigarette butts in one hour with only 13 litter enthusiasts on a Sunday afternoon, we call that a win! A few of the regulars and a few first timers got the job done and then some.

 

It's very clear summer has started again with the bins overflowing, people forgetting that we have only one planet and family fun bbqs turning into litter fests without intent.

 

The job is not yet done,but it is for coordinators Yumi and Gilbert, so if you feel that you can help coordinate (one of the) new litter pick Sundays for 2020, get in touch any time.

 

Thanks to all who attended, we might have been small in numbers, but we were big in results!
