Big shout out to the beach cleaning team!

Thanks to everyone who supported this initiative.  We cleaned a huge section of Kite Beach thanks to a small but dedicated bunch of people.

Well done to Linda, Peter, Neal, Marta, Francesco, Debora, Nicoletta, Vickey, Patricia (we can see you at the back), Liz, Sean, Ariane, Kirk and finally the Salter family.
