CANCELLED – Beach Day Use at SandBanks
Unfortunately we had to cancel this event. The forecast for Sunday is 29 °C with a strong thunderstorm that can bring flash flooding and damaging winds.
Everyday should be a beach day! Said the wise lady. Bring your smile, family and friends to join ECCAO to the fabulous Sandbanks beach where we will have fun, eat, swim and enjoy each other’s company.

We will be at Dunes Shelter in the Day Use Facilities area. (Reservation by Peter)
