In accordance with government guidelines on Covid-19 issued in March 2020, our regular monthly beach cleaning activities were immediately suspended. As you can imagine, the problem we face is maintaining an appropriate social distance and hand/cough hygiene in a scenario where all of our equipment – gloves, litter-pickers, rubbish bag hoops, wheelbarrows, pitchforks etc. – can be shared by up to one hundred volunteers. At present, we are doing only occasional, very small clean-ups with a core group of long-serving volunteers and their family members.
As soon as we are in a position to recommence large-scale, regular, monthly beach clean-ups, the members of this group will be notified.
We are very hopeful that this may be in December 2020, if Level 5 restrictions are lifted.
