MY Sapphire CommUnity, supported by Sapphire Coast Tourism and local businesses, has planned a clean-up of the tunnel that allows access to the beach from Kingsway Road in Warner Beach, opposite Spar.

The clean-up starts this weekend and the tunnel will be painted in the Sapphire Coastand#039;s trademark blue seen on local bridges. The painting will continue on Heritage Day, Thursday 24 September, when volunteers are invited to join in with the clean up and painting and to celebrate Heritage Day with free wors rolls (available while stocks last).

In recent years the tunnel has become home to vagrants who have made it unusable and unsafe. The aim of this clean-up is to reclaim and rebuild the area so that people can make full use of the beautiful coastline. If the public starts taking on small clean-up projects like this, the potential for knock-on effects is huge. Creating the Sapphire Coast as a leisure and sport loverand#039;s paradise as well as an eco-holiday and tourist destination is possible. This in turn will create jobs and make the area more sustainable and desirable in which to live.

All are welcome to join in with the clean-up from Friday to Sunday (18 to 20 September) between 8am and 4pm, and on Heritage Day from 8am onwards - even if itand#039;s just for an hour. - Supplied
