Best wishes for a Happy Christmas to all our volunteers and supporters. We soon farewell 2019 and prepare for the Twenty Twenties!Its been another full Coastcaring year where volunteers contributed 2,196 hours to the natural environment of our town during 62 working bees! This included hand weeding and filling many hundreds of bags of weeds, planting around 4000 seedlings, watering seedlings approximately once a month since spring, seed collecting for next year, collecting too much rubbish and mulching our plants
