Beach Clean-up and Sandcastles: International Coastal Clean-up Day 2017

Another successful beach clean-up done and dusted!

As part of International Coastal Clean-up day 2017, we have invited Heidelberg Christian School, Hessequa municipality’s environmental department and the WESSA Beach stewards to help us clean the beach on Friday, 15th September. After the clean-up, everyone enjoyed their sponsored lunches which were followed by a very fun sandcastle competition that the kids participated in.

To Hessequa Municipality, Plastics SA and DEADP, thank you for the sponsoring of prizes and lunch packs!
