With the assistance of Frankston City Council, 3199 Beach Patrol was founded in March 2015 With a view to sustain our local beach environment whilst protecting our delicate and unique Port Phillip marine ecosystem. 

3199 Beach Patrol's group of dedicated volunteers meet on the third Saturday of each month to clean our much loved Frankston beach. We provide a friendly and rewarding opportunity for people of all ages to participate in not only making a visual difference, but also helping to protect Port Phillip.

3199 Frankston Beach Patrol July Clean Up by 3199@beachpatrol.com.au
A great day was had by all as 3199 Frankston Beach Patrol ascended on Frankston beach today for their second clean up day.



Working between Kannanook Creek and Oliver's Hill, part of the team made a dedicated effort today to tackle the rocks near the entrance to the Oliver's Hill car park while others continued along the beach.



Despite the forecast of showers earlier in the week, the weather was glorious with the shining down upon the group of 15 dedicated volunteers. It was also great to see some familiar faces once again whilst welcoming a few new ones as well.



Following the successful clean up, about 10 or so members made their way over the highway to the ever popular Aum Shanti café for a very well deserved drink and for those with an appetite, a bite to eat.



Frankston can certainly be equally as proud of the effort made by the group today as I am, the result of which are listed.
3199 Beach Patrol Inaugural Clean by 3199@beachpatrol.com.au
In all, about 20 came along however some had to leave early due to other commitments leaving us with 15 volunteers, one of whom, Mark, was a walk up.

We managed to cover the ground between Kannanook Creek to the rocks just before the Oliver's Hill car park and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

There were some great photos however unfortunately our photographer, Ann, hit delete instead of transfer, so the only shot I have is a screen shot of our magnificent Beach Patrol leaders at the launch taken from the video I recorded.

A big thank you to all who came along and especially Ross and Romana Headifen who assisted me in leading my very first beach clean.

Lastly, I would also like to thank our sponsors, Frankston City Council, Bumnings Frankston, Peninsula Surf Centre, Snap Printing Frankston, Peninsula Camera Centre, our supporters, Cignall Frankston who are offering portable ashtrays at cost price for anyone who mentions Beach Patrol and Hang at Foot Street Newsagency and Lotto
