It's Plastic Free July! PFP do a beach clean up!

It's Plastic Free July! To kickstart this event the Plastic Free Peninsula Group did a beach clean up at Worser Bay Beach... 

Message from Sophie Williams...

83 of us collected heaps of rubbish today, about 10 sacks full! 

The weirdest things we found were:
A travel washing machine
A welding helmet
half an old wooden suitcase
A bra
A fishing rod covered in tube worms.

Melissa won the prize for most collected
Edward won for unusual small washing machine
Amanda won for unusual Welding mask
Kaia found the suitcase!

Edward and Vicky tidied around a penguin nest. Edward said: "From the sound of it, you could hear babies - squeaks. There was heaps of rubbish around the nesting box: polystyrene, snack packets and heaps of cups".

Great work! So satisfying.

Thank you to all of the families that participated- a real team effort. Such a great turn-out (and so much rubbish collected!), Plastic Free Peninsula is thinking of holding them quarterly.
