The Kloof Project’s February Highlights

OUR COMMUNITY, TO THE RESCUE!

With the generosity of TANDEM LAWN INDUSTRIES, and the technical support of Paul at KLOOF LAWNMOWER CENTRE, we are now the lucky recipients of a smart new chassis for our motor, which was still in good condition. 

Much of the Village Rd and Old Main Rd verges are cut by The Grasschopper team, as an entirely sponsored effort – every Wednesday, during the growth season.  However, to give other verges that are out of this jurisdiction a regular mow, as our garden team can squeeze it in, will be the cherry on top, and will provide Kloof CBD with a neat, trimmed look that immediately shows TLC and pride. 

And if this generosity wasn’t enough, the owners of Village Road Motors (BP) have agreed to supplyi us with fuel with which to run our mower.   

A big shout out to all the wonderful businesses who don’t hesitate to come forward and help us. 

DONATE USING YOUR MYSCHOOL MYVILLAGE CARD

We are now averaging an income of between R600 and R700 pm from this scheme, as a direct result of your shopping. When you swipe your card, we get up to 10%, which is being passed on to our kitty.   

The potential for this is enormous, if we could get more Kloof residents to do the simple on-line application process to register The Kloof Project as their beneficiary.  Please encourage your friends and family in the area to register

IT COSTS YOU ABSOLUTELY NOTHING, just the commitment to show your MY VILLAGE card at the till when you pay for your purchases at any Woolworths, Engen Quick Shop, Waltons, Builders, or www.loot.co.za.     

THE BRIDGE-TO-BRIDGE CLEAN UP EXPLAINED

We are looking for Kloof residents, to serve as supervisors of our Bridge-to-Bridge Cleanup team. 

An exciting project, to completely eradicate unwanted Alien Invasive Vegetation, from the entire stretch of railway line from Everton Bridge through to Willingdon Bridge, is underway.   

This visual opening of the zone will have many advantages, such as: 

  • reducing the security risk by improving visibility,
  • enhancing the surrounds, for users of the steam train, and cyclists on the bike trail,
  • removing invasive plants that have no positive role in our environment. 

WHAT WILL YOUR VOLUNTEERING ENTAIL?

A team of 5 men need your general supervision during your allotted week of volunteering. Your daily duties include:

  • Meeting the team at 7.30am to distribute the necessary tools,
  • A mid-day check-in with the team for progress,
  • Sign the team off and check their tools in at 4:30.   

If you have a general knowledge of alien invasive plants, and you’d like to join the team that is cleaning up our community, we would love to hear from you now, as we are drawing up a roster to get this project secure and underway.   

HOW DO I ENROL?
