The summer is winding down and, with it, the frequent buzz of lawn and bush maintenance we have been hearing in Lax Kw'alaams lately. Pictured here is band summer worker, Angel Abrahams, raking her work near the bottom of Church Street.
The forecast is for cloudy skies and possibly rain on the weekend but back to clear skies next week!
