Ward 101 AreSebetseng (Let us Work) - 25 November 2017
Dear Residents and Stakeholders
A Re Sebetseng is a monthly community cleaning campaign initiated by the Executive Mayor, Cllr Herman Mashaba, that was launched on the 30th of September 2017, aimed at active involvement in cleaning the streets within their own neighbourhoods. Our next clean up operation is as follows:
Date: 25 November 2017
Time: 9.00 to 11.00
Venue/Assembly Point: Corner of President Fouche and CR Swart, Northwold.
Parking: 4th Road, next to the Golden Harvest Village I, Northwold
Clean up area: Corner of President Fouche and CR Swart, Northwold
• Litter and waste strew across our City drive away investment and job creation as well create health risks.
• All citizens are responsible for their environment and should take pride in their surroundings.
• The City cannot be the only solution to the problem, be part of the change you want to see!

Important notice from the General Manager
28 February 2018
Circular 2 of 2018
I would like to say a big “Thank You” to each and everyone for making the last three and a half years such an amazing “trip”! I enjoyed every minute and I will miss all of you tremendously. I would ALSO like to say a BIG thank you to Chapel Ministries as well as Val and her Social Committee for the LOVELY farewell gifts I received on Sunday. Every time I use any of those gifts I will be thinking of all of you.
This is my last circular, hopefully not too many moans!
1. New Directors
In the last board meeting held on the 22nd of February both Johan du Preez and Derek Saunderson resigned. Thank you very much for your selfless contribution as Directors and a special thank you to Johan for his immeasurable contribution to our Procurement WOW process.
John Retallack will replace Johan as Financial and Procurement Director.
Everything of the best, John!
All owners and residents will be informed once the other director has been selected.
2. Communications Committee
This is a plea to all residents to let Tertia know if you would like to join the Communications Committee. We are in desperate need to replace two valuable members after receiving the resignations of both Chris and Lu Penberthy from the Olive Branch, our monthly newspaper.
Thank you for your generous and invaluable contribution. I will miss you both very much!
3. Post Boxes
Our kind, voluntary post ladies have requested that everyone must please empty their post boxes more frequently as they cannot always add important internal post.
