POSTPONED – Hirepool Big Clean 2021 – Petone Beach Clean-Up | Sustainable Coastlines

Event postponed

Thanks for your interest in attending! As you’ll be aware, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, no public events can take place, so this event has been postponed until further notice. If you’ve already registered, we’ll send you an email to update you once we have a new date or if we have to cancel the planting. We’ll also update our events page and social channels with new announcements.


We need nature and nature needs us, so we’re looking forward to seeing you at our next planting event and getting those seedlings into the ground!
