Make it a challenge and clean up a beach



WITH some of the best beaches in NSW, the Tweed community is being urged to get behind the 2005 Clean Beach Challenge which was launched yesterday near Duranbah Beach.

The Keep Australia Beautiful (KAB) initiative - now in its fifth year - aims at preserving our world-renowned icons visited by millions of people each year.

KAB's NSW program manager, Chris Tola, said the challenge attempted to provide a community focus and link to the preservation and management of our beaches.

"It's a community-based competition which aims to enhance the overall environment of beachside communities by promoting personal initia-tive, civic pride and environmental awareness at a grass- roots level," he said.

"It is open to individuals and community groups - in fact any person who enjoys or is involved in the care of our beaches."

Mr Tola said anyone interested in taking part should submit an entry form by July 22.

The challenge has nine categories, including the overall cleanest beach award and a community action award.

Anyone seeking further information should contact Mr Tola on 02 9633 3380.
