The New Horizons Neighbourhood Watch (NHNHW) in conjunction with Grassy Park police will treat 40 children from the community to an educational excursion on Thursday morning.

The children, aged between 11 and 13, will tour the Castle of Good Hope as part of their excursion on the day.

“We will leave from the community at 09:00 sharp and will be set and ready to start our tour as from 10:30 onwards.

“The purpose of this tour is to keep the kids busy during school holidays and also to empower them with knowing and understanding their cultural heritage of the past colonial era in the Cape,” says Saadiqah Ganief, a representative from NHNHW.

“We will be feeding all 40 children on the day, as well as 10 adults, with breakfast, snacks and lunch.

“We are however looking for assistance in completing the snack goodie pack and finalising transport, as we do not receive any funding for our social crime prevention events.

“As we have a partnership agreement with the police, they too will be attending our excursion for safety, and each child attending will have to sign an indemnity form.”
