SPAR Eastern Cape delivered a strong message to the Nelson Mandela Bay community when the SPAR Summer Nathi programme was launched at Happy Valley.

With an exciting festival, co-ordinated by events company Soul Good, laid out from December 16 to 31, SPAR sponsorship and events manager Alan Stapleton urged the organisers to reinforce a message about protecting the environment.

“Summer Nathi is all about bringing people together and celebrating the beauty of our metro and the beauty of our people,” Stapleton said.

“But one really big request we have is to use this programme to keep talking about the STOP Plastic campaign and to keep the metro clean.

“We don’t need to have a big mess left behind by these events. At the end we encourage everyone to pick up a piece of rubbish and place it in the bins.”

Starting with the opening of the season at Hobie Beach on December 16, the programme will come to a conclusion with the traditional blockbuster New Year’s parties at Wells Estate and Hobie Beach on December 31.

Picnics, musical shows and various fun activities will be on offer, with artists such as Lady Zamar, DJ Maphorisa, LKG, Kabza de Small and Simmy, as well as various local acts, lined up to entertain the community.

The other events in the Summer Nathi programme include a Christmas Picnic in the Park at Happy Valley on December 22 and the Uitenhage Picnic at the Willow Dam on December 23.
