Prince Rupert Civic Pride planning clean-up this Sunday

Civic Pride will be holding a community clean up later this week.

Civic Pride will be holding a community clean up later this week, and are encouraging all members of the community to help keep Prince Rupert clean and beautiful.

“Civic Pride would like to see a big crowd out because there’s a lot of mess around town,” said Civic Pride’s only remaining active member, Charlotte Rowse.

“There are a lot of areas that have gotten really awful.”

The clean up will take place on Sunday, October 23, starting at one p.m. at Mariner’s Park. As usual, gloves and bags will be provided for volunteers. Volunteers can go to any desired location around town to pick up trash to help keep Prince Rupert clean.

Whenever people feel they are complete they can bring the garbage bags back to Mariner’s Park, where the City will pick them up. People can also bring them home with them, and put them with their regular trash, if desired.

Civic Pride is really encouraging everyone of all ages, races, and statuses to take part, as Prince Rupert is the home to an arrangement of different people, whose responsibility it is to keep the city clean.

Civic Pride use to hold community clean ups monthly in the summer but this year the number of clean ups have dropped due to lack of support and dwindling volunteer numbers.

Rowse is the only active member left, as others became busy with other areas in their lives, and she soon would like to pass the position on to another member of the community going forward.

Anyone wishing to learn more about Civic Pride or the clean-up this Sunday, or to become a member of the group, is encouraged to talk  to Rowse.
