Five volunteers (3 Japanese, 1 Malaysian and 1 Vietnamese) turned out for today’s Arakawa River clean up at Funabori and collected 14 bags of trash. Due to the tide being high we were not able to clean the main target near the pods, which was quite dirty. A Plan B course was chosen under the shade of the overhead C2 highway, which is not as dirty but still needed cleaning. Today was exceptional because the designated leader (me) became ill with a cold on Thursday and could not attend but two other members took on the leader role and the event was able to continue. It was really a great job by everyone who joined.
