‘I love Cottesloe coast’ facebook launched

We love Cottesloe Coast– beach clean & picnic & facebook page launch

When: Saturday, 26 October 2013 – 10am to 12pm

Where: The Cove surf break – south of Cottesloe main beach

On a perfect late Spring Day we had the best beach clean up ever! I say ‘the best’ because although we have been cleaning the beach regularly for many years it is usually a feel good exercise but not exactly eveyone’s idea of lots of fun. However, throw in some music to the mix, picnic blankets, 1970’s lilos and 45 willing rubbish collectors – many young, everyone enthusiastic and full of passion for the coast. This all equated to a fun rubbish pick up.

Jenita co-ordinated the event with Tangoroa Blue, the Perth chapter of Surfrider and the Wilderness society. It was also the launch of the ‘I love Cottesloe coast’ facebook site: facebook.com/Ilovecott

The clean up gang






After the (far too many kilos) of rubbish had been weighed we sat around on picnic rugs under the marquee and enjoyed some music and shared snacks. We soaked up the glorious views, watched the surfers at Cove and we  also enjoyed the much cleaner beach below our tent!

Don’t forget the ‘I love Cottesloe coast’ facebook site. There will be lots of interesting Cottesloe coastal happenings and lovely people to meet at: facebook.com/Ilovecott

    Sorry I couldn’t make the clean up – looks like it was a lot of fun – and the facebook page is great!
