THE Algoa Bay branch of WESSA and the Zwartkops Conservancy are joining forces for a beach clean-up at Bluewater Bay swimming beach on Saturday from 09:30 to 10:30.

The public are invited to participate in this Walk with a Purpose and to assist in cleaning the beach.

Bags will be supplied, but participants are requested to put on hats and sunscreen and bring along gloves if possible.

To get there, driving from the city side along the N2, take the Bluewater Bay off-ramp and then turn right at the stop street where it meets with Weinronk Way. Drive straight to the end of Weinronk Way and then into the swimming beach parking area.
