3207beachpatrol News and Date for next Clean!

3207beachpatrol News


After a week of rain which threatened to dampen our involvement in Clean Up Oz Day (4 March) - the sky cleared just in time as energetic 3207 beach patrollers gathered to blitz the beach litter.

Enthusiastically promoted by Ross and Ramona aided by Gail and James' organisational skills - the word was out around Port Melbourne.

Ambitiously covering all four zones - 3207 marshalls "fired the gun" at 9am. Scouts (and parents) from Glen Iris again assisted us - this time making a big difference on Sandridge beach.

Zone 2 on First Point Beach attracted some new talent - Damien from France - joining Fay and Peter's marshalling effort. Abundant plastic litter washed up around Princes Pier saw 6 large bags easily filled. (And more there for next time!!)

Neil marshalled Port beach and enlisted volunteer passers by - and especially tackling the drain outfall on Port beach.

Overall - some 60 dedicated volunteers collected over 200 kgs of plastic trash - restoring our beaches beautiful.

New members also signed up as they see the positive effect of our action.

As usual - drinks and chats afterwards - as the oddest finds of the day were showcased. Plus Lindsay found five bucks!

Next group clean is 9am Saturday 14 April at Princes Pier - please come and be part of the fun and camaraderie.


Enjoy a happy and safe Easter!

cheers Tom
