THE Keep Hillcrest Beautiful Association organised a tree-planting ceremony in the Elizabeth Road park in recognition of Arbor Month. Five trees, delivered by Mike Haskins, were planted by KHBA employees, Zukisane and Songezile Nathaza. KHBA’s Marge Mitchell said the association is grateful to Les Jones from the Westriding Neighbourhood Watch who maintains the park, keeping it litter and weed-free. “Committee members Margaret Vorwerg, Eunice Barendse and Bev Clarke were present on a spring day to lend their support, and we thank them for their efforts,” she said.Mitchell encouraged the community not to litter and keep their neighbourhood tidy. “If we imagine a city we usually see an attractive environment with well-maintained buildings and beautiful parks and the area is most definitely litter-free. “The one way we can do this is not to dump illegally, clean up our neighbourhood and pick up litter.” Mitchell said that realising a clean city requires community involvement and law-abiding citizens with a love for their city and its well being. She encourages people to keep their living spaces clean, which includes cleaning pavements and roads. She also invites the community to the drop-off centre in Delamore Road where they can also drop off their recyclable goods. For tips on how to keep your area clean, or for information about the drop-off centre, contact Mitchell on 083 419 3807 or Jean Jooste on 082 895 0540. - Supplied.
