Student Leaders clean up Portland beach

 

A group of 20 teenagers spent about six hours on Sunday cleaning up a section of beach at Discovery Bay near Bridgewater Lakes.The clean-up was initiated by three year 12 students from Portland Secondary College - Margy Doherty, Shae Smith and Claire Charman.Margy said the clean-up was organised because the beach was littered with rubbish."It’s our favourite beach, we go there on a regular basis and it was just becoming disgusting … beaches in Portland are kept tidier than this, so we decided to do something about it and 20 of our friends turned up to help," she said."We ended up with a trailer load of rubbish, mainly plastic bottles, some toothbrushes – items which have been thrown overboard from boats."The people at the Portland tip waived the fees for us when they heard what we had done, so that was really appreciated."Margy said another clean-up would be organised at the beach in the future."We’re hoping to get more people involved next time," she said.
