Letters: Society doing its job

Flea Beach is being taken care of by Sheringham Point Lighthouse Society

Regarding the recent letter to the editor concerning Flea Beach in Shirley.

We live a short walk  from this area. We are pleased that the Sheringham Point Lighthouse Society has volunteered to preserve and be the caretakers for this land.

The society reached out to the community and asked how to care for the small beach area after they received permission from the Ministry of Transportation to be the caretakers when the local parks commission refused.  The consultation was extensive and many participated.

Almost all the opinions came back to keep the area pretty much just as it is, plus improving the access road, the drainage and insuring the plants and trees were not cut and the ecosystem restored.

The society is going to do just that – however it takes a bit more time when things are done correctly, which include consultations and approvals from the Ministry.

The Society is to be congratulated for taking on this project for the community.

John and Jill
