Coastcare ends year with another clean-up success
BRAY COASTCARE ended the year on a very high note as they had one of their most successful clean-ups.
To the pleasant surprise of the Coastcare team, some 22 volunteers turned out to lend a hand.
The group collected an amazing 53 large bags of rubbish and filled a skip to the brim with these along with scrap metal and other items.
The idea was to get the area clean enough so as to maintain it and keep it in good order for the future.
The weekend’s clean up began with the volunteers cleaning up the harbour area with the Swan Sanctuary volunteers who were out too, ensuring the harbour is kept clean and safe for both swans and people alike.
The group then moved up and under the railway bridge and onto the pathway that leads to the Ravenswell Road.
Due to last Monday’s JCB digger clean-up the area was much easier to manage and the area is now almost completely litter free.
This is a tremendous achievement by the volunteers and local town council as the area was awash with all sorts of litter before this hard work which has eventually paid off.
The Bray Coastcare group were delighted with the turnout at the weekend and hope that it continues in 2009.
