In hot and humid conditions, 21 dedicated volunteers made their way to Frankston's main beach area for our last clean up of the year.

Part of the team included Adele Neale from Environment Victoria as well as the Labor Candidate for Dunkley, Peta Murphy.

The day was made extra special thanks to donations from Sand Sculpting Australia, Foot Street Newsagency & Lotto, Cignall Frankston, Peninsula Camera Centre and Ann Copelin which were raffled off by way of a free ticket to everyone who contributed on the day.

Being Summer, Frankston City Council have vamped up their own beach cleaning activities which was evident of much work they are doing by the small number of items we collected: 4 bags totalling 8Kgs.

Thanks to everyone who got behind us for 2015 - our sponsors, supporters, and of course all our volunteers, all of whom contributed to our success.

I look forward to seeing you all again for our first clean for 2016 on January 23rd.

Have a very merry Christmas and happy new year, be safe, and again, I look forward to seeing you on the beach!
