2016-09-13 06:00

A RESIDENTIAL meeting was hosted at the New Germany Lutheran Church last Thursday and updates will continue in the line of educating residents on the “dos and don’ts” of living alongside a river.

UThekwane Conservancy spokesperson Justine Saunders said: “A meeting for the industrial side of New Germany [where businesses border the Aller river] will be taking place on Thursday, 15 September at 2pm at Fibre-Wound, 9 Freese Road. The meeting is free and all are welcome.

“This Saturday is the International Coastal and Rivers Clean-up Day. There are four areas to choose from so please join us and The Lions Club in this clean-up campaign. All litter collected along the rivers means less gets into the ocean. Unfortunately the seminar which uThekwane and Edgewood host every second year has had to be cancelled due to student unrest.
“We are hoping to run this later in the year.Thanks to Nick Liebenberg for taking a walk through Alfred Park pointing out the beautiful spring flowers and interesting critters.
