3184BeachPatrol Covering the Beautiful Elwood Beaches

3184 Beach Patrol

3184 Beach patrol looks after the beautiful Elwood beaches.  It is sandwiched between the 3182 and 3186 zones.  The Elwood beach is a particularly attractive beach for local families.  Its wide light coloured sandy beach with gentle lapping waves makes it an ideal picnic and swimming destination for family and friends.  When clean, the beach is a gorgeous site.  Lets keep it that way!

Elwood Beach Patrol dates for 2018:    We meet at 9 am, see next beach clean up info on the home page or our facebook page for details of meeting point.

Elwood's windy October clean a success by 3184@beachpatrol.com.au

For our October clean up, which took place on Saturday 21st, the Elwood beach patrollers decided to head to the Point Ormond end of the beach. It was a windswept morning and we needed to rug up despite the hotter weather earlier that week. Unfortunately we could see the evidence of the recent warm weather had taken it's toll on the beach. We collected enough litter that we almost ran out of bin space to dispose of it!

Thanks to our dedicated team who braved the chill of the wind! Next time we will meet at Head Street jetty on Saturday 18 November at 9am. Don't forget to bring along some cash to enter yourself into the draw for Jack Johnson concert tickets (generously donated by Jack Johnson to Beach Patrol Australia - all proceeds go to the Beach Patrol Australia group to invest back into our activities)!

Sunny September on Elwood beach by admin

Our decision to delay our September clean up for one week was a winner; the sun's rays warmed us as we cleaned our beautiful beach!  Thanks to our great team the beach was looking cleaner and healthier by 10am.  It was great to see a few new faces and always a pleasure to connect with our regular members too!  Although the weight collected this month was relatively low, we all found that our clean up time was spent picking up little pieces, often tiny fragments of plastics or cigarette butts.  This is the stuff that does so much harm to our marine life, both in the water and the coastal bird life too.  Well done team and fingers crossed for some more beautiful spring sunshine at our October clean up.
