Despite the bitterly cold start to the day, there was a reasonable turnout of residents to help at the monthly “Clean Aberdeen” session last Saturday.
A few people worked in the town centre, but the majority, including some school children who volunteered, concentrated on the Klipplaat road out of town. This road passes between the townships of Lotusville and Thembalesizwe, and is one of the main routes into the town. It is without doubt the worst from a litter point of view, not helped by the wind which blows a great many empty plastic bags from the townships.
Young and old worked together well, and a satisfactory collection of filled bags was testimony to their hard work!
