Volunteers are needed for a spring cleaning of local beaches this Sunday, April 6 hosted by Coast Surf Shop.

After touring a few beaches, it seems that Point Holmes is the most deserving. Sign up at Coast Surf Shop in person, call 250-941-1600, or join the Facebook event page.

All volunteers will meet at Coast Surf Shop at 1705 Comox Ave. in Comox on Sunday at 11 a.m. to sign in and grab bags, gloves and a light snack. Then people will meet at the boat launch at Point Holmes.

After a couple hours of cleanup, people will meet back at the boat launch where we will draw for some great prizes provided by local businesses.

Coast Surf Shop thanks the Comox Valley Regional District for waiving the tipping fees at our landfill, and B&D Containers for delivering and picking up one of their large containers to haul away all the garbage.

Also to John the Independent Grocer in Comox for donating garbage bags, gloves, and snacks for the volunteers. And finally a big shout out to local businesses for donating some amazing draw prizes for the volunteers.

Together we can clean up all the marine debris and return our beaches to their natural state, creating safe conditions for all the wildlife that depend on clean shores.
