Daisy & The Gumboot Kids premieres on CBC

Locally produced web series, Daisy & The Gumboot Kids, premieres online at this Thursday. The series is a spin-off of the award-winning television series, Scout & The Gumboot Kids, which is recommended by the Parents’ Choice Awards and was recently named a finalist for the international children’s media award - Prix Jeunesse. Each episode, Daisy makes a nature craft, such as Willow Wreaths or Bird Cookies. Inspired by objects in nature, the crafts are low-cost and easy to make using objects found outside or around the house, making it an easy activity for parents to do with their pre-schoolers. Downloadable instructions are also available online for those parents who may be a little craft-challenged. For additional learning opportunities, each Daisy episode also ties in with an episode of Scout & the Gumboot Kids, so pre-schoolers can have fun with their crafts and learn about nature at the same time....

Rabbits are cute but make terrible pets

In advance of the release of the movie “Peter Rabbit”, The Small Animal Rescue Society of BC (SARS BC) is urging consumers to refrain from impulsively buying rabbits as pets. “For dedicated guardians, having a pet rabbit is a rewarding experience,” says Lisa Hutcheon, president of SARS BC. “But too often, we see the other side of rabbit guardianship. They are dumped in parks and left to fend for themselves, soon falling victim to injury, disease, starvation and predators. For hundreds of these former pets, death is a slow, painful certainty.” The release of films featuring cute animals typically results in a spike in pet sales, which, in turn, results in volunteer-run, non-profit rescues being inundated with requests to take unwanted animals once consumers discover how much work they are. This has been seen with the release of such films as Snow Dogs, Snow Buddies, Legally Blonde and 101 Dalmatians. This...

Slice of South Surrey History Reopens

Historic Stewart Farm offers hands-on programs, fun free events for 2018 Aside from the appearance of little children splashing around in colourful gum boots and crocus buds poking out of the ground, another sure-fire sign that Spring is just around the corner is the reopening of the Historic Stewart Farm. After a brief winter hiatus, South Surrey’s famous historical landmark opened its doors today (Feb 1), welcoming another bloomin’ season of unique educational programs and fun events for the whole family. “It’s a very exciting day for all of us here on the farm,” said Jerrilin Spence, curator at the site. “From our popular interpretive tours led by a costumed guide and engaging hands-on school programs to our lineup of free family events, including Family Flags on Feb. 12, 2018 promises to be another big year for us!” And while the farm’s events and pre-registered programs are always a big...

Funding for Homes for the Homeless – No longer just a promise – Now a solution.

Surrey has 650 homeless people and 470,000 residents. As Whalley continues to develop, the local clash between the haves and the have-nots is becoming more evident. Businesses are growing impatient with the RCMP’s three year plan. They can’t afford to wait three years. They are tired of promises. Residents and business owners want solutions and answers now. The business community in Whalley has been pressuring the city to crack down on the illegal activity stating that the lack of solutions is causing one business after another to close down. The more businesses that close down, the more the area becomes run down and derelict. While the brand new buildings go up at City Centre, Whalley looks more and more like the neglected child in the middle of Surrey’s prosperity.

Free Large Item Pickup Program Available In Surrey

ILLEGAL DUMPING | TRASHING CANADA (by Harvard Gould) A 7:25 minutes CBC | VIDEO REPORT Illegal dumping: Why do so many Canadians trash Canada? A widespread practice in this country, writes Harvard Gould. It is astonishing what Canadians do in the woods. Canadians love the landscape and the landscape helps define us. The Group of Seven and other celebrated artists showed the world a country of pristine lakes and glorious forests. Canadians are proud of the country’s soaring mountains and powerful rivers, the unspoiled wilderness a treasure even to those who do not regularly explore it. But all over this country, people will toss almost anything almost anywhere when they think no one is watching. This isn't mindless littering. This is deliberate trashing of the landscape, the dumping of vast amounts of household garbage, construction waste and much, much more.
