School may be out for the year, but Walking Bus volunteers are still doing their bit to keep local children safe.

Throughout wards 79 and 82, volunteers are stationed at municipal facilities to ensure children are kept busy.

“Because many of the parents are still working, the Walking Bus volunteers are hosting events and calling the children from the streets to rather come and enjoy events at the community facilities,” says ward 82 councillor, Washiela Harris.

Councillor Solomon Philander says there are activities at swimming pools and recreation facilities in Ward 79, in addition to the City of Cape Town’s holiday programmes.

The walking bus volunteers will be stationed at the facilities until Friday 20 December, with the City’s recreation project running up to Tuesday 14 January in some instances. Pictures tomorrow
