Letters: Flea Beach trees need removing

Society should stick to mandate of lighthouse preservation

On September 10, the Sooke News Mirror published my letter concerning Flea Beach. My letter called for removing dangerous trees from Flea beach and the addition of a bench.

By October 1, the Sooke News Mirror had published four letters from members of the Sheringham Point Lighthouse Society disagreeing with me and supporting their society’s stewardship of Flea Beach.

The society chose to protect an adjacent house, a reasonable decision, but refuses to remove the dead and leaning trees that endanger lives and property of the many visitors to Flea Beach.

The Sheringham Point Lighthouse Society’s stewardship of Flea Beach wears no clothes. The society is not elected and in Flea Beach serves its own members but not the families of Shirley.

I support the society’s efforts directed at preserving our local lighthouse.
