Cleanup .. O’ Cleanup – DONE and Dusted!

23 Jun 2018 Posted by in News and Events | 4 comments

Greetings All on this wet, cold BUT amazing afternoon in Zeekoevlei ….

So we rocked up at the meeting place by boat just before 10 and to our shock … only Cate was on site…. No.. No… Capetonians are tough and the prevailing rain would not keep them away …. (my optimistic thoughts bellowing in my head!)



Tom arrived in style ……



More People started arriving …. with huge smiles and thick warm jackets …  Yippee!! Thought so ….  These are tough citizens and would not let us down – The group grew to about 20 very soon…… Here we go!

Started drizzling and the wind came up and the group was resolute in achieving the set goals – teams scattered to their designated areas and soon the amazing stories about where they found rubbish and how bad some areas looked came streaming in…. Laughter resonated across the water and the cold did not deter the fun had by all. Not even the fact that two people fell in and might have damaged their cellphones stopped our progress …..  I heard additional laughter when this happened but the culprits will not be exposed!



And after all the hardwork … we were rewarded with an amazing rainbow …

Dalton and his team were incredible with the hands-on assistance and removing van load after van load of rubbish as they were brought out ……


All goals achieved which included the cleanup … but even more importantly, making sure that our whole community unite for common causes that affect our environment. It was great to see this happen today – CONGRATULATIONS ALL!
