A few years ago, our business suffered a fire, just as the holiday season was kicking off. It could have been devastating for us and our business. But we made it through the experience and emerged with a strong sense of gratitude and appreciation for our Downtown business community. We were overwhelmed by the kindness, support and encouragement from our neighbours on our street.
Once we were settled into our new location, we realized just how unique the business community on Fort Street is. Hence, the Annual Fort Street Community Scrub Up was born. Once a year, our business community on the street gathers for an hour of good clean fun. We roll up our sleeves and work together to give our street a thorough spring cleaning.
It's like an old fashion work party and its amazing how much folks enjoy this community event. The Scrub Up highlights just how fabulous the business community in Victoria is!
