3194BeachPatrol Covering the Mentone Beaches

3194 BeachPatrol

 

3194 BeachPatrol looks after the picturesque beaches of Mentone. 

Mentone beach is at the northern most end of a 20km stretch of open beach that ends at Frankston. The beach is backed by cliffs which were the subject of many famous paintings in the early 1900s. Access to the beach is via steps and a ramp from car parks off Beach Road. The beach is popular with locals and visitors alike especially in summer where dogs are able to be walked on leash.

3194 BeachPatrol was launched in early April 2014. The local residents and members of the  lifesaving club and surrounding school communities have banded together to help create a cleaner, safer beach for all to enjoy.

The three lengths of beach that 3194BeachPatrol cleans are 1) Charman Road to Kitchner Street car park, 2) Kitchener street car park to Mentone Hotel, 3) Mentone Hotel to Warrigal Road

A satisfying day today for Mentone Beach Patrol.

In only 1 hour our 6 volunteers collected 12 bags of rubbish weighing 38.9 kgs which included 30 bottles and cans.

A great effort considering most of the rubbish was light weight plastic wrappings.

Also some posive news. Thanks to the efforts of the Melbourne Zoo and Port Melbourne Beach Patrol

Port Phillip Council has banned the use of balloons at any of their events and it is expected that this will rollout to other councils.

Port Melbourne Beach Patrol recored 743 balloons found in a 35 metre stech of beach over the last year.
