As part of the Ocean Conservancy’s International Clean-up Day, 12 local groups, and members of the public, are banding together to pick up rubbish from Owhiro Bay to Breaker Bay. This event follows on from the successful first combined community group clean-up of the south coast in 2010.

Join us to help make this a fun, many hands make light work job.

Meet at one of 12 meeting places (see map above). Look out for the person in a high viz vest from each of the groups.

2) Island Bay – Island Bay Divers
3) East of Island Bay Bait Shed – Friends of Taputeranga MR
4) Houghton Bay – Blue Wellington

12) Pass of Branda - Wellington Underwater Club

All rubbish will be gathered up at 12.15 and taken to Lyall Bay to form one large pile. There will be a sausage sizzle outside Wild Style Surf Shop and Café afterwards where participants can mingle and meet each other.

What to bring: bags and gloves will be provided. If you have your own gardening gloves please bring them along.

Hope to see you there and together let’s keep our seas free of rubbish!
