21 Apr Guilderton Cleans Up
Thank you for cleaning up Guilderton!
Sunday March 4th saw over 60 people take to Guilderton’s river, roads, beaches, tracks and Silver Creek on Clean Up Australia day.
As crowds took to the river and beach for fun, others gave a couple of hours to remove rubbish from this lovely place. It was a beautiful day and not too hot!
Many thanks to 1st Beldon Scout Group, who are allowed to camp in Silver Creek to thank them for their great efforts, in what has become an annual event.
Thanks to the 4WD club who brought 4 vehicles and 8 people to clean up the tracks and beach north of the lighthouse, for the first time. This group also gives invaluable help in revegetating this area of bush in our annual June planting day.
Thanks to the river team of Bob and Richard, Jo and Hannah, Mike and Margo, Lynda and Clive and Maggie, who brought down a boatlaod of rubbish from the riverbanks.
Thanks to the road team of Gillian and Neil, Diana, Les, Jim, Eleanor and Rod and also the foreshore team of whoever Linda could persuade to help. At the groyne, Linda and Cathy scoured the road, bush and beach for rubbish too.
And thanks to Guilderton Country Club for donating a sausage sizzle for the workers, beautifully cooked by Anne and Bevan. Cold drinks and watermelon saw us all feeling nearly normal again.
And many thanks to the locals who do clean ups over the rest of the year!
We hope that others appreciate our efforts and decide to always put their rubbish in a bin.
