Help us welcome in the New Year with a clean up at our favourite spot – Petone Beach!

This will be held at the Ski Club end of the beach where we know the problem is its greatest! We will be sending volunteers to clean up different spots along the beach from the Ski Club to the Wharf. We will also be running a Litter Intelligence survey & audit, so we can capture data on what items are found at this site.

All equipment will be provided including gloves, sacks, health and safety documents.
