As part of the Clean up New Zealand Week the

~ Saddle Hill Community Board ~ will be hosting at Brighton a

~ Community Clean Up day ~

When: Saturday the 13th of September 9.00am until Midday Where: At the Brighton Domain carpark (thats the big domain with the playing fields).

Afterwards a BBQ will be supplied for all the volunteers who have helped with the clean up. What to bring, yourself a friend, some warm clothes and a smile. We will supply the gloves and rubbish bags.

~ The community cleanup group will be focusing on cleaning up the streets and parks around Brighton and Ocean View, but a group of surfers from Big Rock will be working on cleaning up and down the coastline from Ocean View to Taieri Mouth.

If you ever have surfed down that way you'd know that in the many lay-bys and off-road carparks at certain breaks there is alot of rubbish, and also along the beaches. I think its a great opportunity to pitch in with the local community to make our environment more pleasant to use, and for the wildlife with whom we share the space. We hope to arrange a special cleanup of the Kaikorai Estuary within the next month.

I encourage all surfers and beach lovers to join in this cleanup on Saturday whether you are a member of a club, just an individual, or other community group .. we are all from the same planet and enjoy the same environment.

Above, rubbish dumped at Blackhead.
