School students clean up East End beach

| 18/12/2014

(CNS): A science class from Clifton Hunter High School took to an East End beach last week to clean up the shoreline off of Spotter’s Way. Armed with bags and gloves donated by the Department of Environmental Health, the twelve students descended upon the remote beach, where they collected 28 bags of garbage and recyclables that had floated in from around the world. Among the more interesting finds were an inflatable pontoon and a refrigerator door. Linda Locke of the Reef Resort the closet accommodation to the beach, joined the crew and provided dry-fit T-shirts for the group.

The resort also provided a free meal and drinks for the students afterwards. More community support came from White Sand Water Sports which donated a ride on their newest attraction – the Jetovator. One student collected six large bags of rubbish and will be enjoying an airborne outing on this latest water adventure invention.

    Very nice of The Reef for accommodating with a meal and drinks, and to White Sand Water Sports, as well, for their services!

    Wonderful community Spirit ~ the volunteers are most kind to work hard to clean up the beaches! How nice of Linda Locke of The Reef! The beaches in this area are worse than ever ~ many plastic bottles and of course, other debris.
