Navy carries out beach cleaning programmes in Northern Naval Command

Two more events of the Navy’s beach cleaning programme were conducted in the Northern Naval Command on 30th September 2019.

Accordingly, the Northern Naval Command conducted these cleaning drives at Vettalakerni and Peduruthuduwa beaches with the participation of a large group of naval personnel. As a result of the dedication of naval personnel, it was able to restore the beauty of the beaches, which were heavily polluted by natural causes and human activities.

Following the directives of Commander of the Navy, Vice Admiral Piyal De Silva, the Navy has been doing a commendable job to transform the polluted coastal belt around the island into a beautiful one, with a view to attracting both local and foreign tourists.
