ANOTHER amazing pick today at Grays Beach. Good weather, lots of new faces and 24 pickers. Thirty-three sacks of rubbish including 210 plastic bottles.
Thanks to both The Lighthouse Café staff and the council for their support today.
As you can see from the pile of rubbish in the photo, there is still loads of rubbish needs collecting from the foreshores.
Their next pick is on Wednesday meeting at the Wharf Pub..
