We need additional facilities not trees

2019-07-02 06:01

In response to the article published in People’s Post about sports facilities getting more trees, (“Council sports facilities go green”, 25 June).

I think this is a good idea, however, we need more sports fields and other improvements to our already existing facilities on the Cape Flats as it is ill- managed.

Trees are great, they give oxygen and uplift the area, but we need infrastructure to meet this first.

That R1.2m spent in Newlands and Southfield could give kids on the Cape Flats a chance at playing sport and keeping them off the streets. Maybe something to think about.
