An icon gets a spruce up
By AMY McGILLIVRAY
A swarm of more than 1000 people
will descend on Rangitoto Island
on Monday with the aim of clean-
ing up the coastline.
The mass clean-up marks the
launch of the nationwide Love

by the Sir Peter Blake Trust,

coastline protection in our com-
munities,'' he says.
Rangitoto gets its share of rub-
bish washed ashore. Every new
tide brings rubbish from the city.
For example, in two hours, 10
volunteers picked up 78 Auckland
city parking ticket receipts which
are made of plastic,'' Mr Judd
