Local support for for Clean Up Australia Day and Every day!
Beachmere, once again, showed up for Clean Up Australia Day with over 40 people heading out to clean up their neighbourhood, parks and waterways on the first Sunday in March.
Sue Materman, editor of Beachmere Facebook page Beachmere Community United, organised just one of the groups and promoted the event across the page.
Local businesses always get involved as well and this year Dominos at Beachmere supported the clean up by offering all those involved in teams on the day a Pizza Voucher.
Store Manager, Ashley Waddington, said “Now that our Beachmere store is locally owned, we really want to support locals and Clean Up Australia Day is a really great initiative.
With “clean, green” electric bikes making up the bulk of delivery vehicles, and nearly every staff member from Beachmere itself, Domino’s Beachmere certainly is taking up the environmental cause on a local level.
State Member for Pumicestone, Simone Wilson, said supporting local small and family businesses are an essential part of our Beachmere community and I'm backing them.
“Local is the New Black in Pumicestone” is about each of us doing our part to grow our local economy and to help create local jobs. Think first about where you shop and engage your services. Ask yourself 'can I buy this locally?' and do it!”
Simone encouraged all Beachmere residents to support local stores, shops and businesses.
