3191BeachPatrol Covering the Sandringham Beaches

Sandringham Beach Patrol is a friendly volunteer beach-cleaning group, who meet for up to an hour each month (we’ll take 30 mins if you’re on the run!) to clean sections of the Sandringham foreshore.

We are a diverse group who share a common interest in caring for the wonderful beach at our doorstep.   

Only one hour a month helps to provide a safer, cleaner, more beautiful environment and a natural unpolluted habitat for marine life and beach creatures.   We believe in the power of “many hands make light work” and that joining Beach Patrol is a simple way of helping within our community.

Members have a simple, but important task, of collecting rubbish, however, we also welcome ideas on promoting a better understanding of packaging and litter in our environment, to the wider community.

Regular beach visitors will notice that the beach is often littered with rubbish, particularly after heavy rains, when storm water brings street litter to the Bay.  The task of cleaning this rubbish is more than Council can manage, but with a little help from BeachPatrol, the area is greatly improved!

We meet at the beach at 9am on the last Sunday of the month.  Become a member to be advised by email of the meeting point of our next clean.

Join us before netball, basketball, shopping or golf – come on the way – every little hand helps!
