Community Clean Up – Sunday 2 May 2021
A huge thanks to our committed community clean up crew who came along to Fairbairn Park, Ascot Vale as we deep cleaned a section of the Maribyrnong River and around the sports ovals, leaving them in much better shape than we found them.
Polystyrene, drink bottles, straws, soft plastics, ball pit balls and a whole bunch of other random stuff was found in places it’s not meant to be.
While we were clean up-ing, the dedicated peeps at Rotary Club of Flemington Kensington were planting up a storm with the help of some truly fab Council conservation officers.
High fives to everyone involved!!
