Let’s do it Happy Beach!

April is still proving to be a bit chilly with dark clouds from time to time interfering with the warming sun. But fortunately this didn’t deter local residents from participating in the island-wide Let’s Do It Cyprus beach cleaning!

And for this reason I was greeted in the morning by an unusually welcome sight on Happy Beach: 10 eager beach cleaners with sacks and matching t-shirts pouring onto her sands, scouring for trash. They did their best and I could see the improvement on the next beach further down – that has been in dire need of some TLC. WELL DONE GUYS!

Lets go Cyprus

Even though this isn’t a regular event – it makes me happy to see adults and children spending part of their Sunday on this cause. The awareness raising element alone is valuable stuff.
