It’s Clean Up Australia Day. Members of Rotary Club of Modbury Golden Grove this morning scoured Baymor Reserve at Modbury for litter.

There was a man sleeping rough in the park, and he soon joined us in cleaning up the reserve, and another neighbouring park.

Well done team, collecting two large bags of waste, and a bag of recyclables.
