On Wednesday 2 March Bellarine Bayside staff and community members took part in a Clean Up Australia Day event held across all three towns. Clean Up Australia inspires and empowers communities to clean up, fix up and conserve our environment with more than 7000 sites registered in 2016. To be part of this year’s activities Bellarine Bayside staff officially registered to conduct our own event and invited the community to join in the fun. Focussing on several key litter hotspots, staff and community members collected several bags of rubbish along our beautiful foreshore over a two hour period. Bellarine Bayside is proud to be a part of the hundreds of thousands Australians who every year volunteer to Clean Up their local environment.
