Movement in Sandspit

  • Jun. 4, 2012 4:00 p.m.

The Sandspit community office/Moresby Island Management Committee office has moved to a new location. The office is now in the visitor information centre at the Sandspit airport, says administrative clerk Deena Wilson. It has the same email address and phone number (637-2466) as before. The Sandspit visitor info centre is now open for the season, Ms Wilson said. It will be open every day from noon to 4 pm for the rest of June, and from 9 am until 5 pm starting July 1 for the rest of the summer season. Meanwhile, the Sandspit Seniors’ Thrift Store has moved into the community office’s old space at the SuperValu mall, and volunteer Carole Bowler said they couldn’t be happier. The new store is about twice as big as the thrift store’s old location, and thrift store has plenty of donated stuff to fill up the additional space. In a town that doesn’t have many shopping options, the thrift store offers a little bit of everything, from clothes to household items. “It’s the best recycling in town,” she said. The thrift store is open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 3 to 5 pm.
