Beach out­ing for a clean-up — and love?

Geraldton Guardian - - News -

For some peo­ple, Valen­tine’s Day is the most ro­man­tic time of year. For oth­ers, it’s just another day.

But this year the Batavia Coast­care Net­work are look­ing for sin­gle beach-lovers to give na­ture a help­ing hand while meet­ing other like­minded peo­ple.

On Fe­bru­ary 14 peo­ple un­der 35 years of age are in­vited to Pages Beach for the in­au­gu­ral Love Your Beach event.

Par­tic­i­pants will take part in a sun­set beach clean-up be­fore head­ing over to Ger­ald­ton’s West End for din­ner and ac­tiv­i­ties with the Com­edy Em­po­rium.

BCN sec­re­tary and North­ern Agri­cul­tural Catch­ment Coun­cil’s Coastal and Marine Project Of­fi­cer Vanessa McGui­ness said the event was an op­por­tu­nity to do some­thing dif­fer­ent on Valen­tine’s Day.

“This is a chance to come to­gether and share in­ter­ests,” she said.

“We thought this would be a great way for peo­ple from all walks of life to come out for some fun and en­ter­tain­ment, while giv­ing back to our beaches.

“There is no pres­sure. Just come on down and say hi while do­ing your bit for the en­vi­ron­ment.”

The free event is sup­ported by the North­ern Agri­cul­tural Catch­ment Coun­cil, In­trepid Land­care and the WA Land­care Net­work.

Love Your Beach kicks off at 6pm.
