Langley residents participate in Canada wide Pitch-In!

Volunteers joined in for some spring cleaning around the city of Langley

The City of Langley hosted its’ annual Pitch-In! event at McBurney Plaza.

People were invited to join their neighbours and pitch-in to help clean up the community.

“Pitch in is a Canada wide initiative where people come out and give back to the community” said City of Langley Rec Supervisor Tera Edell.

“What we have here today is people come in and they check in with us, pick up all of their supplies and head back out to their neighbourhoods and within the community” said Edell. “The idea is to give back and do what you can to support your neighbourhoods.”

The City of Langley staff provided all necessary supplies with gloves, garbage pickers, garbage bags and safety vests.
