We did it again - we beat the weather!
Yes, despite the showers that swept through Frankston this morning, our awesome team of 14 dedicated volunteer managed to complete our 1 hour clean before the rains came.
As the "Bloody Big Swim" had also been scheduled for the day, Frankston City Council had run the rake over the beach, so there really wasn't that much for us to collect. That said however, we did find 1 syringe near the new Frankston Yacht Club and almost 1000 cigarette butts! Yes, that's no misprint, almost 1000 butts carelessly left on or to wash up on our gorgeous beaches.
On the upside though, we did manage to gain some more much needed financial support from The Dharma Hub (formerly Aum Shanti), our favourite Cafe run by two of our original Beach Patrollers, Rebecca and Rob. It is with this in mind that we ask you to show your support towards them and give them your custom whenever you need a bite to eat or a refreshing beverage as without local business such as The Dharma Hub supporting us, we would not be able to continue the services we provide. So to Rebecca and Rob, we thank you for your continued support, both hands on, the discounts you provide our members and the financial support.
