Give us a Wave! Bring a candle at 7pm tomorrow
There will be a candle-lit protest at 7pm tomorrow (Sunday 20th) calling for the Harbour Commissioners to fix the Wave at Whitehaven Harbour.
This was organised by Chris Gurney, who set up a Facebook site to campaign set up a group on the social networking site Facebook. Since August 23, his page has attracted 576 members who all want the focal point on the harbour to be repaired and have come up with ideas of how to fix it.
He wrote online: “Hopefully quite a few of you will turn up and show the harbour commissioners that there is a real swell of public opinion that we want the Wave fixed. See you there!”
People are asked to bring a candle along.
The Harbour Commissioners have said that plans are in place for new designs for the lighting, but it could take around 12 months for funding to be secured.
Mr Gurney is also part of the photography group, Whitehaven Snappers. It is this, he said, that has spurred him on to petition to get the Wave fixed.
It's high time the wave was fixed and I hope that this gets strong support.
