3207 BP May Clean by information@beachpatrol.com.au

 Another big turnout of over 50 people today to clean a Port Melbourne Beach.  A reporter had wanted to come and record the event in action but we had told here this is a small beach and there won't be as much to see as there would be in the hotter months.    Big mistake!   The group collected a lot.

38 bags of rubbish,

261 bottles and cans
