Letters: Residents care

Shirley resident defend Sheringham Lighthouse Society work

As a Shirley resident, I feel I should comment on the state of Flea Beach. Local residents have for years been concerned about keeping this area clean and accessible. I, for one, was greatly relieved to see the Sheringham Point Light House Preservation Society take a more formal role in its management and upkeep.

This involved formally petitioning the government for operational oversight and once granted, the Society held many open meetings to gather insight and hopes from the local residents as to changes and improvements that could be made.  It is a regular agenda item at society meetings and concerned residents can attend meetings or follow any plan progress on their website.

I am sure that the local bears, otters, quail, rabbits and other wild critters, while they do not necessarily have access to the internet, also appreciate the efforts of the Lighthouse Society to preserve their natural habitat.
