The team spearheading the revamp of the neglected Protea Road Sports Complex will be hosting a clean-up project on Saturday and are encouraging members of the public to join in.

The Talisman Protea Project Clean-Up will take place from 7.30 am with those interested meeting at the main cricket oval. Once the glory of the northern suburbs sporting community, the Protea Road Sports Complex had recently been left to ruin and neglect.

Yashveer Singh, the cricket coaching manager for KZN Inland Cricket Union and the Dolphins, and Warren Naidoo, the Northdale hub cricket coach for KZN Inland Cricket Union, initiated a project called the Protea Sports Park Association about five months ago with the view to revamping the space and reigniting sport in the community.

The clean-up aims to ensure that a vast area — that includes the cricket oval and pitch, banks on cricket oval, cricket nets, volleyball courts, tuckshop, soccer fields, hall, carpark and squash courts — is covered and maintained.

Those participating in the clean-up are encouraged to take along their own masks, sanitisers, gloves, bin bags, brooms, rakes, and where possible their own brush cutters and other cleaning equipment. For more information contact Yashveer Singh on 074 615 4628 or Warren Naidoo on 082 526 3898.
