Coastcare ends year with an­other clean-up suc­cess

Bray People - - News -

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.
