Letters: Broom pull appreciated

Broom in public spaces in Sooke are tended by volunteer

Sooke’s newest public spaces contractor, has taken it a step further. Steve McKague is to be congratulated on his wonderful commitment to clear the broom off of Sooke Road, all the way to Idlemore. I saw him and a helper clearing the last of it today. He has taken this on personally,  to tidy up the entry into Sooke. What a great contractor for Sooke. You see him out there, clearing and cleaning up the roadway and keeping our entrance to Sooke looking good.

A big thank you and Merry Christmas to such a dedicated worker. It would be great to see all residents entering Sooke, taking greater care of their yards bordering the entrance to Sooke. Thanks Steve for reminding us to keep Sooke looking good.
