Illegal dumping has become a problem in our suburb. Tim Truluck, our Johannesburg Ward Councillor, has the following to say about it:

If you see a vehicle illegally dumping, take pics with you phone (you must get the number plate) and note the time. Then What's App the pic and date and time to Zed Managaliso on 0827791361. He will try and track down the illegal dumper, fine them and make them pick up what they dumped.

Tim also added the following on our current traffic congestion:

In an attempt to get the traffic in Jozi flowing smoothly, there is a new 24 hour hotline that you can use to report broken down vehicles, accidents, taxis misbehaving, busses rat running through the suburbs, illegal parking, traffic lights down, etc. It is 0808723342.

Comments Please!

SAPRA has been approached by SGI - South Africa to establish a community garden in SAPRA-land. SGI stands for "Soka Gakkai International" which is a faith based organisation. You can read about SGI in South Africa by clicking here.

Their plan is to grow perishable, vitamin-rich foods close to our community - they are thinking about using the old bowling greens at the SGI centre. For those who don't know where that is, it is bounded by Blandford Road, Wells Avenue and Dudley Road, Parkwood. They want to mobilise our community in a teaching and charity initiative. You can read more about the proposal by clicking here.

Now we are soliciting views and comments from our residents to the idea. You can add your comments on our chat page on this website.

So, what are your thoughts?
