South Ambergris Caye Neighborhood Watch Cleanup

PRESS RELEASE – For immediate release

The South Ambergris Caye Neighborhood Watch is gearing up for the island’s busy season with a neighborhood clean up! All south end residents and their families are encouraged to participate in sweeping our neighborhood clean of trash and debris on roads, the beach and empty lots.

The clean up will take place on Sunday November 14. We will meet at the water tower at 7:30am to divide into groups to tackle different sections. Please bring bug spray, work gloves, and whatever tools you may need such as rakes, machetes and shovels. The SACNW will provide cold water and garbage bags. Clean-ups generally only take a couple hours and the more people who help out the faster it will be.

The SACNW invites all neighborhoods to get involved in organized clean ups and showing our visitors just how Bonita our island can be!
