Clean Up Australia Day - When the hard work is done - most volunteers look forward to a BBQ or refreshments!

When the hard work is done – most volunteers look forward to a BBQ or refreshments!

It’s time to stop and take a look around your local area, find those rubbish hotspots that need attention and register for 2017 Clean Up Australia Day.

The Gympie Regional Council has requested that Tin Can Bay Fishing Club co-ordinate the Clean Up Australia Day Event on the Tin Can Bay foreshore on Sunday  March 5.

Said Club President Jim George, “We welcome school children, community members and all other volunteer and community groups to join us in this very important event.

“We will be commencing at 8am in the park near the children’s playground, directly opposite the Tin Can Bay Library in Toolara Road and expect to finish by about 11.30am.

There will be a free BBQ for all who assist in the Clean Up and to register your group, please contact the secretary on 0437 242 171.

Clean Up Australia Day is the perfect way to get rid of rubbish that is accumulating on neighbourhood streets and beaches, in parks, bushland and waterways.

The website is now open for 2017 registrations, calling for everyone to put on a pair of gloves and grab a bag – because when the rubbish is gone, nature can carry on.

You can also support participants by either sponsoring a site or donating via the website or facebook.

100% of monies raised is allocated to the purchase of materials provided free of charge to community, school and youth groups across the nation – all year round.
