THE Margate Business Association says it is pleased with the town’s appearance and has had no complaints or negative feedback this holiday season.Speaking to Fever, chairman, Martie Walker, said the town was neat and busy, even under the current economic climate.“Business owners are doing their bit to keep Margate looking great. We also have a good relationship with the Hibiscus Coast Municipality,” said Walker.“The municipality usually responds in good time to our requests. Few things take longer to get sorted out, but in the end it is always done,” she said.Walker said the association also had a good relationship with the Margate SAPS.“The only slightly negative thing I have to say about Margate is that the sign welcoming people to the area is in the wrong place. It should be in front of the Sasol service station.” she said.The garden feature, situated where Walker believes the welcome sign should be, is maintained by the owners of Michael Frey’s Fresh Meat and Koko’s nightclub.Frey said he was born and raised on the South Coast and, as a resident and business owner, believes that everyone needs to join together and do what they can to maintain and better the area and make it something to be proud of. “Together with Koko’s, we maintain the two triangle garden beds as you enter Margate. Over and above this the garden areas directly opposite Backline’s entrance, the area outside Rawson’s Properties and all the way up to Senzi’s on Faya (Panorama Parade) is also maintained by us,” he said.Senzi’s staff also ensure that the streets are cleaned and kept clear of litter after they lock up every evening. Frey supplies plants, compost, dirt bags, equipment and staff at his own expense to maintain and clean these areas.
