Beach clean-up a GDC basic
Magnificent photo in Monday's Herald re Waikanae/Midway beach showing just how clean and pristine it can be, and full of visitors. We are currently led to understand that GDC may not have the clean-up of the current situation done prior to Christmas — what a catastrophe that will be if it is the case.
The beaches of Gisborne are one of the jewels in our crown and whilst there will not be international visitors here this holiday season, there will be plenty of New Zealanders and many will be first-timers. What a first impression will be given with the beach strewn with the mess that is currently on the sand.
A major theme of our last local body elections was to get back to basics — well, beach cleaning comes under that heading.
GDC — please show some common sense and if you do need to review this process, this is not the time to do it. Please just get on with it.
