“Love our Spruit’ initiative

A warm thank you goes out to all residents who have so generously donated funds towards the “Love our Spruit’ initiative. 

Take a look at the before and after pics.

The project has kicked off and the FUNDI team has started by pruning overgrown bushes and lifting low lying branches to improve visibility under the watchful eyes of Neill & Lois Evans.  It is a vast area, and progress may seem slow, until one realizes how much cuttings have been generated.  

It's our Spruit - so please let's make it the wonderful attraction it should be - and at the same time, remove the hiding places for un-desirables in the suburbs.

Please could we ask each of you to deposit your amount into the following bank a/c and send the proof of payment to:  environment@hurlingham.org.za or fax it to 011 802 7011.
