Rockcliffe Beach Clean: 

As part of our World Oceans Week activities we undertook a beach clean down at Rockcliffe. A big thank you is in order for all those who came down and helped out. We managed to fill loads of bags with all sorts of rubbish. Some of the most common rubbish found was cotton wool bud sticks, which we believe wash up as a result of people flushing them down their toilets. They make their way through the sewage treatment process undamaged as they are plastic, and end up all over our beaches. Luckily we have a very helpful and caring community at Rockcliffe who were very thorough and managed to give the beach a good clean ready for our events the following day, which were enjoyed by a good crowd of happy beach goers (pictures of which coming soon hopefully).
