We hope you’ll come celebrate Seaweek and get stuck in to clean Petone beach and the surrounding coastline!

Our generous partner Hirepool wants cleaner coastlines for us all, so we will be working with local community groups to have the biggest possible impact on cleaning up the rubbish found in and around the beach.

On the day there we will have a main base camp set up at Hīkoikoi Reserve, with shuttles running volunteers to the other end of the beach. Volunteers will sign-in, pick-up gear, be given a briefing and then head out to clean an area of the beach. We want to make the biggest impact possible and clean every corner of the beach!

Everything will be provided including health and safety preparation, equipment and refreshments. Whether you’re up for a light stroll or getting dirty and wet, all hands are needed, so we hope you’ll register now and to see you there!
