Clean-up week

As in the last 4 years, also this spring there is a clean-up week. This is organized by local cultural society "Skiathos" , in collaboration with the municpality and other societies and volunteers of the island.

The idea is to raise awareness about the importance of a) respect for the environment and b) volunteering in general.

The schoolchildren started last saturday and cleaned one of our most famous beaches: Koukounaries.
And every day of this week, more beaches are being cleaned.

Tomorrow is our turn: the International Women's Club of Skiathos. We will clean the old boatyard that is not in use any more. As you can see on the photo I took a few weeks ago, there is plenty of rubble and rubbish that landed on the beach due to the many south winds we have had this winter.

There will be plenty of work for us tomorrow.
