A HUGE thanks to everyone for coming along on Saturday. With over 80 hands, large and small hard at work, we picked up a huge amount of litter and rubbish from the beach along Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne – more than15 bags full .The major culprits of cigarette butts, straws and plastic bags are still raising their ugly heads – and sadly six syringes were picked up too. We are not a totally safe bare foot beach yet but we are getting there and the goal remains intact!
It was great to see the locals mixing at the Sand Bar afterwards and as always the stars of the show were our children. It’s so incredible how they get in to the task and then let it rip with fun in the sun, sand and sea!
A special thanks to Beach Pat roller Captain Kelly for bringing along the boat and taking the kids for a well deserved joy ride!
We know not everyone can make it along as lives are very busy but thanks to ALL our members for your continued support in the future. By the end of summer we will have 3182 and 3186 Beach Patrol. This would not have happened without the enthusiasm and support of our very special hood, 3206!
Merry Christmas and Happy Summer Days to everyone
3206 Beach Patrol
