Diving in for clean-up

KIRRA Dive is taking Clean up Australia Day to new depths.

The business is calling for volunteers to help clean out Jack Evans Boat Harbour tomorrow.

Staff member Kristy Morgan said she was hoping to see about 40 people turn out to help.

“We have about 30

people so far; people who have dived with us before and members of our club group, but we are trying to get as many as possible,” she said.

“The response has been good after all the disasters we have had. People seem to be really keen to get out and look after their local area.”

Even people who don’t dive are welcome.

“If you don’t dive you can still be involved cleaning the surrounding area, and there is going to be a big barbecue as well,” she said.

“People who want to dive must have experience, and if you don’t have the equipment we can help supply it.”

The floor of the harbour is littered with broken chairs, fishing line, hooks and sinkers and rubbish.

“We dive in there pretty much every day, and we do little clean-ups now and then, but this will be a big one,” Ms Morgan said.
