The Sooke Lions phone books are now being delivered to each household in Sooke free of charge.
In keeping with our practice, we contract the delivery to a local sporting association through the Sooke News Mirror.
These groups are given explicit instruction that they are to be placed on the door knobs and not to be left in the weather.
We also ask that they do not place them in the Times Colonist boxes.
Unfortunately, a number in the Broom Hill afrea were tossed in driveways during a heavy rain storm and are ruined.
Replacement phone books can be picked up at the Sooke News Mirror office free of charge, or call us at 778-425-4420.
We truly regret this situation and will take further steps to ensure this does not happen again.
Al Beddows, Lorne Christensen
