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.

A few us got together to go snorkelling around the Lagoon Pier to survey the litter in particular bottles at the bottom of the bay around there.  It is a hot spot for littering by fishermen.   The water that day was too murky to see more than 1/2 m however.   We ended up picking up a bag of litter off the beach around the pier.  Plus walking to and from the site we picked up over 30 bottles and cans.

3207 First Clean for 2016

Today we had 25 volunteers come out for our first clean of the year.  Great day, slight on shore wind.  With the cooler weather, the beach visitors are not out so much which means less litter on the beaches.  We started off with a little talk about nurdles and how to spot them on the beach.

47 Bottles and cans

Approx 30 kg was picked up.
