Every morning I get up early and walk along the beach south of the Brunswick Surf Club.

What I’ve started to notice is that on Monday mornings there’s litter and rubbish lying about everywhere in front of, and around, the surf club building.

The litter is left by the people who use the area for drumming on Sunday afternoon/evening. Every Monday it’s the same mess.

This morning (Monday) I saw some long-time local surfers picking up the rubbish and putting it in garbage bags, which is good of them but ultimately not really their job.

To the drummers and all those using the grass in front of the surf club and car park area on Sundays I say to you: ’Clean up after yourselves. Have some respect for the beach and other people who like to enjoy it.’

Clean up your mess!

Brendan Kelly, Mullumbimby
