Guiding the way: Aldergrove’s 11th Girl Guides braved the rains on Sunday to do their part in keeping the streets of Aldergrove tidy.

Time to dust that broom off, downtown

With the stated aim of “taking ownership of our community,” volunteers from all walks of life will be donning gloves and work clothes for the Aldergrove Downtown Core Clean-up Day on April 16.

RCMP Cst. Paul Walker has coordinated several similar events here in recent years and there is always a good turnout.

Volunteer participants include any and everyone from the business and residential community, as well as RCMP and Langley Township representatives.

Volunteers will meet at the Extra Foods parking lot, 3100 – 272 Street at 8 a.m. on Saturday, April 16.

From there they will scour the community, performing such tasks as litter pickup, graffiti removal, pressure washing and sidewalk cleaning, before gathering for a barbecue lunch at noon.
