Chilli Beach Clean-up Day

On the 2nd of August the students from the Lockhart River State School Secondary volunteered to participate in the Chilli Beach clean-up day. Everyone met up at the Chilli Beach northern car park at 9am. Teachers, parents, the local Lockhart River Shire and the even visitors in the area joined in on the event to help our salt water country. Afterwards everyone was treated to a BBQ supplied by the Lockhart River Retail Store and a t-shirt from the Tangaroa Blue. We were able to cover the whole beach again this year and removed 4.91 tonnes (5.5 tonnes last year) – and the thong count was 4,757 (4,696 last year). Which is a massive 61 thongs more than last year.
