Murrell’s Beach cleanup this Saturday
MAKING Murrell’s Beach cleaner before knocking back an abalone burger is on the agenda for Portland Boardriders Club members this Saturday, and they’re inviting people to join them.
The club’s annual beach clean-up working bee is being held at picturesque Murrell’s this time because it “cops westerly swells, and draws in a lot of ocean rubbish, just like Discovery Bay does,” club spokesman Aaron Campbell said.
“We’ve really noticed the rubbish recently; we see things like plastics off ships, ropes and fishing gear wash up.”
Mr Campbell said people of all ages are welcome to join them for the day.
Abalone producer, Narrawong’s Yumbah Aquaculture, is supporting the event by providing the abalone – and regular sausage – barbecue as well as clean-up bags and gloves and waste collection.
Murrell’s Beach is at Cape Nelson, and its car park can be accessed from Murrell’s Beach Rd.
There is a short, steep walk to the beach, however some clean-up sites will also be available on the hillside.
The working bee is being held from 10am until midday, with the barbecue from midday.
