SE2, Phoenix Park and Heritage Weekend

Mike Woodroffe,  Member of Emfuleni’s Ward Five Committee, writes:

Hi all SE2 residents,

The Shaka’s Trail ‘Gatvol’ steering committee has contacted the Police Brigadier and Chief of Traffic about plans to stop unruly behaviour and drinking in public in our two parks.

They agree that early intervention is essential.

The Security companies have agreed to patrol the parks over this weekend and report problems to their control rooms who, in turn, will report to the authorities.

We residents must also be vigilant and report any instances of drinking in public, loud music, illegal parking and unruly behaviour as soon as it is spotted. Do not wait until the situation becomes out of hand and difficult to control.

Make the phone call.

The more residents who complain and report infringements the more response we will get.

Don’t ‘think’ that someone else has or will report it, make the effort and repot it yourself!

With your help we can and will make the difference so we can enjoy Heritage Day’ with our families.

I am looking for sponsors to contribute to the wages of the two gardeners at the Park. If I get sponsorship I will ask them to work on Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings for two hours each to pick up litter and tidy up the park.

Please dig deep. They are doing a good job with the gardens and I want to encourage them to improve their standard of living and we will benefit with a clean and tidy park.
