Helping hands on beach
A GROUP of Scarborough residents joined hands to promote a clean energy future.
They met on Scarborough Beach last month for one of 117 Hands Across the Sand events worldwide.
The group joined hands to draw a metaphorical and literal line in the sand against the use of fossil fuels and raise awareness of potential risks of oil and gas drilling.
Organiser Claire McKinnon said it was a way of uniting the community in the protection of the natural environment.
“There is broad community concern across WA of the threats to our water, land and community health from unconventional gas mining and fracking. We joined hands on Scarborough Beach and with the global community to stand against such dangerous oil and gas exploration,” she said.
