NOVEMBER 2013 NEWSLETTER
This is my first attempt at a Newsletter for all our lovely members/supporters (some of whom have not yet paid their 2013 subs – please note our Bank Details for your R30!).
Caltex Old Main Road Tree Felling
This has been a disaster and broken many hearts. The trees were indigenous and over 50 years old – thank you to those who wrote to us in their dismay and shock. KHBA considered having a tree planting ceremony there but we believe and hope that the new owner is planning some landscaping.
Adopt A Spot
We are very thrilled that Richard and Jenny Barker of Heritage Motors on Old Main Road and Miles and Michelle Steenhuisen of Mass Landscapes have “adopted a spot” which they undertake to care for and landscape. Hillcrest Primary School Environmental Group have also “adopted” the Library Gardens – a wonderful school effort, perhaps more schools will consider doing similar? You will note the beautiful red roses on the verge of the Engen Garage, and Miles has planted the right hand side of the Exit 28 entrance into Hillcrest with beautiful indigenous flora. We patiently await final approval from Ethekwini Signs Department before we may erect signs to this effect.
Rail Reserve Walk
KHBA have been running with this for sometime now – 9am on the first Sunday of every month, meeting at the Station Master’s Arms. We are a little sad that our numbers are down and urge you to stretch your legs and come for a short plus minus 5 km walk/amble whilst the most knowledgeable Wilbur Mahlamvu ellightens you to the names of the trees and plants. Watch the press for details.
