    Clean Up Australia Day Sunday 6 March - Only 4 days to go

    Clean Up Australia Day - only four days!

    Greetings BCNA members from 3207 beachpatrol

    Only four days to go. Clean Up Australia Day is a major part of our calendar and - being a high profile event - attracts many more newcomers to the cause.

    Australia wihout litter - sounds great. We will be there doing our bit. Sunday 6 March.

    Our part is quite straightforward.

    Start time at 9am sharp (NOT 9.30 am as previously advertised) - so please muster at say 8 50am - at the Port Melbourne beach - opposite Princes Street (that is - opposite the London Hotel).

    As usual - if you have one please wear your 3207beachpatrol t shirt and bring gloves and be aware of our safety guidance - please refer again the website

    For those who wish to join 3207beachpatrol- I will bring t shirts along - and extra gloves and bags.

    Whilst most of our volunteers are local we are pleased to advise that we are being joined by a (non local) scout group!

    The Plan

    The plan is to move together heading east along the beach - past PMYC - through Bay Street and Pickles St and towards Kerferd Road. Whilst our usual Group Cleans are one hour - this one - being special - may go for as long as two. As ever - we aim to have a social finish where we can chat and feel and enjoy our group pride in making our beaches sparkling!

    If you are able to join us for only part of it - please do so.

    This year there is a Port Phillip coalition which has created the intention to clean the beach from Elwood all the way through to Webb Dock East. There is also a penguin event at 11am (please indicate if interested).

    A Group Cleaning Event is fun and rewarding. This one will be even more special.

    You are cordially invited.
    Please feel free to bring friends and family - extra hands are welcomed!

    See you next Sunday at 8 50am for 9!

    Tom Burrows
