As expected, we’ve seen a lot of shared passion and concern over what feels like a second home to many locals and a hidden paradise to many other lovers of this beautiful little coastal area.
Since the start of the Save Caves / Dappat se Gat / Koëel Bay group, there has been a very encouraging out cry of people willing to volunteer and take it down to grass roots level to initiate this restoration project.
Any volunteers willing to help out can meet down by the showers at 10:00am, this Saturday. This should give us enough time to pick up rubbish on the beaches and paths before getting some barrels as the tide drops.
Please give a shout at the event page if you can help with any of the above or have any other ideas.
Let’s Save, Restore and Maintain our Paradise.
On Thursday morning Elena Kellerman and her Environmental Resource Management Department team from Steenbras Nature Reserve stepped in to fix all three of the broken taps, cleaned the area by the shower of litter, emptied the bin and removed the other broken bin. They are also hoping to repair the little boardwalk over the stream sometime next week.
This is great news and a massive help, but there is still plenty of rubbish littered all over the place, especially on the path way and the further reaches of the beach.
We will have the rubbish bags available by the showers on Saturday morning. Once the beach is sparkly clean we can carry all the bags up to Luca’s bakkie from where we can transport it to the garbage dump in Gordon’s Bay. Junk-R-Us has also volunteered to help with the transport of the junk once carried up to the parking lot.
Levan Victor of Vic’s Plumbing has thankfully fixed the shower head:
