Gasfield Free Seaspray reports:

"After weeks of surveying by our tireless volunteers we can declare that 98% of Seaspray residents want our patch to remain gas field free!



To celebrate we're making a HUGE Human sign on Seaspray Beach, with a barbie and bands to boot!"

There was a huge event on sunday July, 28, and Seaspray has become the second VIC town to declare itself
gasfield free. Such an inspiring
effort by the locals.
