The annual Big Spring Clean
Every year in November PRA organises a spring clean of the wider area to prepare for summertime enjoyment of the outdoors and beach. The focus is rubbish removal but weed and pest plant removal has been tackled as has mowing and weed eating in overgrown areas. Some years maintenance issues are tackled like clearing and paining steps down to the beach.
Porirua City Council assists with gloves and bags and removes the piles of rubbish. Plimmerton Volunteer Fire Brigade drives volunteer spring cleaners to far reaches of the area. The mayor and local councillors customarily join in. And up until 2020 Big Macs Slabs hosted an after-match barbecue and sausage sizzle. (sadly Steph and her amazing team have relocated from Plimmerton).
