Glencairn Vlei and Beach Simonstown
World Wetland Day 2014
Time to celebrate World Wetland Day again!
GEESE with the Navy, Rotary & Gordons are joining
the whole World
in celebrating Wetlands and as always, we need help from you if possible….
LITTER – if only we could change people’s attitudes, stop them dropping their bottles, wrappers and whatever………. The world would be so much cleaner and healthier. But the litter is there and we need to have a clean-up – mostly due to thoughtlessness and carelessness.
So we meet on Friday 31st January at 09h00 outside the Viper Lounge by the Estuary.
ü We will provide you with bags and tell you where to go.
ü Please will you bring your hats, suntan cream, water bottles and tough shoes.
ü We have a limited number of tongs (on a first come, first serve basis) and some disposable gloves.
And we would love to see you if you can make it …….maximum of two hours!
With drinks, chat, and shared experiences at the Viper lounge while we all recover
FUN – Once again we are being given the privilege of walking down the Els River, starting at the ruined Water Mill in the Glencairn Navy Sports Fields just up from the stables.
We will meet on Saturday 1st February at 09h00 for a 09h30 start
Wear hats, sun tan cream, and bring some water – don’t forget your cameras and binoculars!
Both Koos Burger of Rotary and Lloyd Walters of Gordons have been doing great things to their properties and this is a wonderful opportunity to see it all and really appreciate them and our river – the Els River! GEESE – thanks to Brad Wallace Bradley and the City - have also improved the quality of the wetland by netting the three storm water outlets that empty into the wetland across from the garage.
DRINKS – at the end of the hike we can all refresh ourselves at the Stoep and Swing who have consistently given us donations throughout the year!
ADVANCE WARNING: Our Annual General Meeting will be held on SUNDAY 23rd MARCH @ 17H30
in St Andrew’s Church …..unless that clashes with major functions currently unknown to us!
So sorry about the short notice but hoping to see AS MANY AS POSSIBLE sometime over the World Wetland Weekend and to catch up with your ideas, needs and desires!
