MANDELA DAY is on Saturday 18th July 2015. Have you decided how to give your 67 minutes? If not, GEESE would be thrilled if you joined them!
This is what we are planning………
09h00 Litter Clean Up for the Glencairn Wetland
Meet Outside the Viper Lounge (below the hotel). We have bags, gloves, some tongs for you and we will pair you off and tell you where to go.
Bring Water, hat and sun tan lotion
Finish @ the Viper Lounge & share experiences over Tea/Coffee & Biscuits
If you would prefer, some of us will meet on Friday (17th) – same place and same time to prepare for GOSLING EVENT – see below
09h30-12h30 GOSLINGS (children) are going to paint a commemorative mural for Saving the Starfish underneath the Main Road bridge at Glencairn.
14h00 PLANT TREES IN THE PETER SALTER DELL AND ALONG THE BANKS OF THE ELS RIVER – Glen Road, opposite Burnbrae Road – just up from the 3Way Stop. Contributions of Compost & Stakes would be most welcome. Again, if you need more information, phone Cilla & Rupert on 021 782 6400 or email them on firstname.lastname@example.org
- Mother Goose tied up in fishing line and rescued by Megan Reid and team from the Cape of Good Hope SPCA Wild Life Team. She has nine baby goslings (originally 11) making her very difficult to catch. Many grateful thanks to all those who tried but most especially to Megan and team who finally caught her with a throw net – an art very difficult to muster. Thank you to you all who cared so much. Please encourage the fisherman to act more responsibly.
- Regular Glencairn Beach Clean Ups on the first Saturday of every month – meet in the Beach Car Park @ 09h30 for an hour & a half. This is a wonderful new initiative to clean our beaches by Simon & Nicki Good and assisted by Christoph Kastern. They started in Fish Hoek and are now including Glencairn – Simon also designed the wonderful red sign “They Poop, You Skoop”! I am very distressed at the amount of dog poo on the paths that is not being picked up, particularly in the Wetland. Do take an extra bag and hand it to anyone failing to pick up after their dog. We must do something to stop this irresponsible behaviour.
- Do diarise the International Coastal Clean Up taking place on Saturday 19th September – more details to come nearer the time.
Looking forward to seeing you next Saturday – Cilla & Rupert
