Thank you for sweeping away the broken glass, the empty chip packets, the pizza boxes and take-away coffee cups.
Thank you for picking up the discarded syringes, the dirty nappies, the beer bottles, the fishhooks and yesterday’s newspapers.
Thank you for removing the disgusting fish entrails dropped at the tap our local dogs drink from.
Thank you also for hosing away the chewed-up watermelon – and the blood you saw in one of the Council garbage bins.
Thank you for cleaning Mosman’s free community barbecues, used all weekend by visitors and left in the most revolting state imaginable.
Thank you for gathering up the used face masks and disposable gloves, the tarps, the still wet beach towels, hats, socks and underpants.
Thank you for restoring our abused beaches and park land back to their natural beauty – before we welcome the next influx of long weekend or public holiday crowds.
