Harbours District Girl Guides

Spotless

Sooke Girl Guides pitch in and clean up public beach area

Harbours District Girl Guides spent the morning  of May 11 at the beach – cleaning it. Approximately 30 girls met at Ed Macgregor Park to participate in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. The original location was to be Billings Spit but a survey of the site revealed a spotless beach, so efforts were transferred to the beach underneath the boardwalk. In two hours the girls collected 70 pounds of garbage, ranging from tiny bits of glass to a soaking wet sleeping bag and everything in between. Sooke Disposal provided the bin and picked up the garbage and the District of Sooke supplied gloves and garbage bags.
