Clean up Australia Day

Moni thanked all the volunteers for their efforts on the Clean up Australia Day undertaken at Mollymook Beach on the weekend and a special thanks to all the Nippers, Mollymook Ocean Swimmers, Mollymook Surf Club members and local community members – Clean Up Australia Day!! What a fantastic start to our partnership with the TAKE 3 SLSC Project! Gauging from the reactions and enthusiasm from the kids and club members today, I feel this will be the first of many. Lovely to see our members protecting where we play.

Moni provided the following list of stuff collected –

105 Plastic Bags
61 Plastic Bottles & Containers
51 Plastic Bottle Caps & Lids
83 pieces of Plastic Packaging
34 pieces of Polystyrene 
115 Glass Bottles (mostly alcoholic beverage bottles) 
16 pieces of rubber (mostly odd thongs)
101 pieces of Paper (mostly fast food packaging) 
75 Soft Drink Bottles
62 Metal Bottle Caps 
30 Confectionery Wrappers 
14 pieces of Wood (mostly ice cream sticks) 
350 Cigarette Butts 
14 pieces of clothing 
1 piece of Furniture 
3 Balls
8 pieces of broken Ceramic
and … over 800 Plastic Flowers blown into the bush and heading straight for the ocean from the cemetery 

Thank you to Julia Armstrong for stepping up as our Take 3 Junior ambassador, what an asset you are to our club. All the beautiful parents that helped collect the data, it was far from an easy job, but this information is so valuable in stopping rubbish from entering our oceans from the source.

Marlene journeys to Cobargo

Marlene an early arrival for the Cobargo Folk Festival

.

Marlene chose to arrive a day or two early to get a good camp spot at Cobargo. She was thankful she did as 1200 campers were later to arrive for the Folk Music festival. She said it was the most amount of campers that I have been part of!! There  were food stalls every where. Music of all kinds, all I can say “It was very exhausting, but I had a lovely time”. Next trip planned is to Narooma.
