Beach Cleaning Kokkino Metochi 20th April

More than twenty people – members of the Clean Beaches Kissamos team,  German and English friends staying in Crete for the Easter holidays, as well as local people from Drapanias gathered yesterday at the western end of Drapanias Beach to clean the beach west of the Ippokampos taverna.tractor

Thanks to all who came and helped! As we know, many hands make light work.
In particular, thanks to the support of the local restaurants LEONIDAS and IPPOKAMPOS providing rubbish bags, tractor plus driver to collect the bags along the beach, and of course a big thank you for the treats afterwards!
Until next time

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
