3207Beachpatrol Cleans up a Mess by admin

A big problem on Sandridge Beach. 

We had about 20 volunteers turn out and about  2-1/2 shopping size bags of litter were picked up each for approx. 150 kg of rubbish.

3207BP's Christmas Beach Clean by admin

30 members turned out to a cool but clear morning to clean the beach along by the Port Melbourne Life Saving club.  To our surprise and delight, there was not much litter to be picked up.  The summer weather has not arrived as yet and the beach visitors numbers are low still which helps the beaches out.  Most of what was picked up was little bits of plastic and plastic straws.  (When will they get banned?)

3207BP cleans in the Wind by admin

3207BP was also out today cleaning up the Port Melbourne Dog allowable beach.  We too saw a lot of dead mutton birds washed up on the beach.  Very sad.

We had about 20 volunteers braving the chill and wind.  The council beach sweeper had removed most of the rubbish recently so we were left picking up lots of little plastic bits. 

Though one mouse trap and another two syringes were recovered.

Our mascot Lucy the poodle was keen to get involved.

 We were also joined by Helen and Victor who are starting up a 3184 Beachpatrol in Elwood.  Good luck to them down the coast there.
