This is a working partnership with the City of Cape Town and Cape Bird Club.
by Gavin Lawson.
On the 08 September 2015 the National Minister of Tourism – Derek Hanekom, the Provincial Minister of Tourism – Alan Winde and the Deputy Mayor of Cape Town – Alderman Ian Nielson formally opened the eastern shore upgrade to a formal picnic area with amenities. This was a Public Works Programme which provided local unemployed for people and skilled them while they completed the work.
The Project Manager Gillian Davids described it as a “work of love” by those involved.
The Programme Director for the day was Ms Lerato Matlakala.
We moved to the False Bay Nature Reserve headquarters hall for the rest of the function with handing over speeches from the National, Provincial and City representatives and their symbolic tokens from the City of Cape Town Environmental Resource Management Dept representative Joanne Jackson..
