Clean Up Australia Day 5 March 2017

WB1703A big thank you to the 29 volunteers who came to the Clean Up Cape Paterson day on March 5th.  This was part of Clean Up Australia which supports and encourages local communities, schools and businesses to clean up one day/year.  10 bags of rubbish and 10 bags of recycling were collected from the township, beaches and foreshore reserves.

Click on the title to read more and look at the photos.  


The good turnout meant we could cover lots of territory, collect a couple of couches from 2nd surf beach(where they were at risk of floating off to sea) and clean up a bush hangout including the overflowing contents of a relocated council bin.  

We followed up the clean up with a BBQ at Birt Park thanks to John Gilliland.

CPRRA is planning to hold a clean up day every year on the national Clean Up Australia day.  We hope to see you there next year!

See below for photos from the mornings activity.
