Talk of the Town - - FRONT PAGE -

About 20 res­i­dents joined Talk of the Town staff for a cleanup of the Port Al­fred Duck Pond last Satur­day. Sun­shine Spar pro­vided black refuse bags, Leach Phar­macy pro­vided san­i­tary gloves, Out­door Fo­cus sup­plied a ca­noe, and The Wa­ter Bar spon­sored wa­ter for the par­tic­i­pants. The thor­ough cleanup saw a cou­ple of dozen refuse bags filled with all man­ner of trash lit­ter­ing the edges of the Duck Pond, in­clud­ing numer­ous glass bot­tles, plas­tic bot­tles, bot­tle tops, plas­tic cig­a­rette box wrap­ping, thou­sands of sweet wrap­pers and even a discarded car bumper. Go­ing out on the ca­noe, Re­nae Pur­don from Out­door Fo­cus with the help of Matthew Steck gath­ered lit­ter float­ing on the pond sur­face and among the reeds. Nd­lambe Mu­nic­i­pal­ity picked up the col­lected rub­bish. Not all vol­un­teers were present for the photo
