Shoes members turned out in droves for Sunday’s 20th annual Clean Up Australia, and did a fantastic job of clearing out rubbish of all sorts from Windy Point to the Bay.
Individuals and families were on the spot, gathering more than 40 bags of litter and garbage from the beach, rocks, inlets and waterways.
The Hatheier, Coleman, Coady, Martin, Maclean, Moffat, Boylan, Jackson, Barnes, Durante, Earle and Petoumenos clans were among the front runners.
Members and their brothers, sisters, mums, dads and friends all got down and dirty in the cause of keeping Shoes and surrounding areas clean. In the case of the Hatheier/Coady families, there were three generations involved!
Some special mentions:
- Dave Moffat will probably have to throw out the T-shirt he was wearing after his commando-like crawling under rock ledges to remove a lot of hard-to-get rubbish.
- Simon Boylan, with the rake he borrowed from the Barnes household, dragging out what Dave couldn’t get on his belly – several bags full of bottles and other rubbish.
- Super-Grommies and Juniors actually gave-up their early Sunday morning surf, to do their bit.
A big thank you and congratulations to all those who helped out. Bravo Neil Coleman for leading the Shoes charge.
