Spruce up for multipurpose park

SOMERSET WEST – Mandela Day (Saturday 18 July) was the perfect time for the community surrounding Geelsloot Park to organise a clean-up operation of the park.

Residents of surrounding areas supported the initiative by planning and monitoring the clean-up or donating to the cost of the private refuse cleaner employed by the community.

Eric Ntanga and his team of Garden Waste Removals took on the large and demanding task. After hours of hard labour, they managed to clean the worst litter hotspots, with more than 100 black bags of litter and some extra bags of garden refuse filled. The clean-up will be completed this weekend, but the park is already looking pristine and fresh again.

The large park, behind Southey’s Vines, so named because of a large water channel that passes through, is home to both the Recreation Tennis Club and Wannabees Cycling Club’s mountain bike trail. Many professional MTB riders and young families with little cyclists use it, as do walkers, and it is enjoyed by many.

There are now thousands of little yellow, pink and white flowers all over the larger fields, picturesque to walk through, especially on a sunny day.

Helderberg residents are encouraged to come along and enjoy the park. If anyone would like to get involved in the upliftment initiatives, or if residents from the surrounding areas would like to remain informed of current park issues, send a message to 072 258 4703 requesting to be added to the park community’s WhatsApp group.
