Beach Cleans and Litter Picking 2017

We encourage everybody to pick up litter whenever and wherever they see it.  Please also collect at least one item from  the beach every time you are out walking.  Anybody who would like to keep a litter picker and hoop at home to make this easier please let Wendy know.

 

Formal beach cleans and marine surveys are as below.  Everybody is welcome to join us even if it is just for 15 minutes.  Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear a pair of strong shoes. All participants should check in and check out with the lead organiser at the Heritage Point.  Gloves and litter picking equipment is  provided.
