This beach clean was organised by People and Stories in collaboration with us, Jetsam and City of Sanctuary. When it was booked the coronation hadn't been announced and we envisioned a sunny, shorts and t-shirts kind of day!!

Despite the weather, there were still plenty of us and we managed to fill 7 or 8 bags of rubbish in an hour. The most interesting find was a buggy, we also found a very broken umbrella and lots of little plastics and polystyrene. We had fun pulling bits of rope and fishing line out of the depths of the beach.

We had an interesting chat with some of the asylum seekers and learnt some new words in Farsi, Spanish and Italian!
