COMMUNITIES from Ndaya and Amahlongwa responded well to tourism awareness campaigns arranged by the development team at Ugu South Coast Tourism (USCT) recently.

The events took place at Ndaya Community Hall in Vulamehlo and Amahlongwa Community Hall in Umdoni.

Also in attendance were representatives from Small Enterprise Development Agency (Seda), Economic Development Tourism and Environmental Affairs and Tourism KwaZulu-Natal.

Each agency and organisation presented valuable and informative information.

Ugu South Coast Tourism Development co-ordinator, Maxwell Mhlongo spoke about tourism at the event.

Nikki Tilley from USCT said demonstrations were given by Umdoni lifeguards, who, through their educational messaging, reminded the community about beach safety.

“The lifeguards reminded the community about beach safety, which included tidiness and the key do’s and don’ts pertaining to beach safety,” said Tilley.

Tilley said given the success and interest shown by the community during the campaign, USCT tourism has committed to train 12 crafters in customer service before the end of July.

“The objective of the training is to develop emerging businesses by equipping them with skills required when dealing with tourists," she said. - Supplied.
