Change of Date for next Beach Clean

Hi All

We need to change the date of the next 3207 Beachpatrol clean to the
14th December.   We had a clash with the 3184 Beachpatrol start up launch on
the 7th which some of us are going to help kick off.

 So our 3207BP clean will be on 14 December at 9 am, meeting at Lagoon Pier.

BeachPatrol 3207 Next Beach Clean 14 December 2013

Change of Date
Beach Patrol 3207
Next Beach Clean
Saturday 14 December 9 am
Meet at Lagoon Pier

Hi All

Our last Beach clean for the year is upon us.  We can only hope it is warmer than the last one which was nigh mid winter conditions.  But Beach patrollers are hardy souls it seems as a number showed up to do their bit.

This time we'll meet at the Lagoon Pier to clean towards the Port Melb Life Saving Club & onto the South Melbourne Life Saving Club.  If you see this guy, during your clean he might bring you extra treats on Christmas morning for your efforts.

Sat 14th Dec at 9 am at Lagoon Pier

Since some of you may be away over the Christmas period and not checking email, the Jan beach clean will be on Sat 11 Jan at 9 am along Sandridge beach.  Meet at the Life Saving Club there.

Merry Christmas
Happy Beaches

We are particularly looking for views of residents over the age of 50 but welcome anyone who wants to share their views.

Have your say by completing either one of the following surveys:

There are no right or wrong answers and all responses will be kept confidential.

In addition to the survey, we will also be running focus groups with members of the community to investigate the 8 key features of Age Friendly Cities in the City of Port Phillip.

Your feedback will be used to prepare a framework that will support active ageing.
