CLEAN UP AUSTRALIA - 2015 REPORT

I was seriously concerned that, if we got a good attendance this year, there might not be enough rubbish to go around, so to speak.

Well, we had an amazing turn out.  A total of twenty three willing helpers gave up their Sunday morning to pick up this year's detritus.  That's 15% of our resident population!  Tell that to Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest.

Clean Up the Cove - Thank You

tonyhThu, 06/03/2014 - 10:25am

It rained and it rained and........then the heavens cleared on the morning of March 2nd. Just in time for a small band of concerned villagers to start the annual task. Twelve eager helpers set about removing another years collection of discards in our area.  We didn't end up with quite such a pile as in previous years, but it was still bad. It is sad that some don't appreciate the beauty of the place we live in and trash it without regard.
