Our September turn out was low on numbers but big on sunshine. We had 12 volunteers collect 11 kg's of rubbish.
Cigarette butts are an increasing problem and so is the smaller pieces of plastic strewn all through the sand.
Hope to see more beach patrollers out in force for this month's October clean up.
