    On Saturday 22 April 2017, Sustainable Coastlines invites you to meet at Scorching Bay for a fun, family day of beach cleanups, beach games followed by a catered lunch.

    Weta Digital has come on board again as the principal sponsor of our 2016 ‘Love your Coast Wellington’ clean-up and education tour. At last year’s event the Weta Crew cleaned up almost 5000 items of rubbish from Evans, Worser and Scorching Bays.

    We’ll send out teams to beaches around the Miramar Peninsula, and find the corners and coves where the rubbish is blown and washed up.
