    Next Beach Clean - 3207 Beach Patrol

    NEXT BEACH CLEAN
    Sat 5 May 9 am at Port Melbourne Yacht Club

    Message from 3207beachpatrol

    Hello fellow BeachPatrollers.

    Another month is upon us this week and after the big rains around Anzac day the beaches are calling for our help again.

    We have scheduled for this coming Saturday 5 May at 9am for 1 hour.   Meet at the Port Melbourne Yacht club in your blue shirts.   We start with the dog beach working south and if we get time move on to the next beach towards the Sicilian run Kiosk.   For something different we can have our coffey and chat afterwards there instead.  It will be good for them to see the beachpatrol at work and then supporting their business.

    So bring a bag, bring a friend, bring some gloves if desired, and a hat to keep the sun (!) off.

    Thanks

    Ross Headifen (for Tom)

    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
