Suburb Goes Online

22 April 2014, 16:30
Greymont is a small suburb in the North West of Gauteng.

Don't be embarrassed if you have never heard of them, it's ok if you haven't, as that seems to be the common trend among people asked.

The Greymont community are trying to build up their area via local effort and utilising various online activities to build awareness as well as get the people involved in the community as well as working together towards the progress of the suburb.


Their main site is of course www.Greymont.co.za (owned and run by residents of the suburb) which is trying to build itself up as a central hub of news and events of the small suburb, from showing where the good bicycle routes are to which municipal entities are actually doing great jobs. 

They even made a brand for themselves shown above the aesthetic of the logo is inspired by their wonderful nature rich suburb as they are situated around their beloved Carel Venter Park and Alberts Farm, also to give a "clean fresh and friendly feel".

They have just started this initiative but already utilising all the top social media sites:
Greymont on Twitter @GreymontSuburb
Greymont on Facebook www.facebook.com/GreymontSuburb
Greymont on Google+plus.google.com/+GreymontCoZaSite

It's a young initiative that holds much promise, if you live in or near Greymont why don't you click over and see what it's all about, feel free to suggest any ideas. They are very open and aware they are trying something new.

I’ll start off with white South Africans. How many of you believe that the African continent will never develop because the political leaders are black? Read more...

Xenophobia, or racism?

Xenophobia is described as ‘a fear, dislike, or prejudice against people from other countries.’ If you substitute ‘countries’ with ‘race’ then you have the description of racism. In my view the two are simply the same thing. Read more...
