Just a quick catch up.
Considering all the crime that is taking place and more importantly the violent crime, CKN is quiet and it is heartening not to have to report on regular crime incidents. Some areas close to us are certainly having it rough.
Please take care at all times as crime comes in so many forms.
So more house keeping this week than crime reports. We have been asked to have a CKN get together before the end of the year so a market will be organised for a date in November.
Neighbourhood Clean Up
Then we will use September as a time to give our neighbourhood a bit of a makeover. Joy and her team are doing a great job in the area but I am asking that you please maintain your pavement and sweep your gutters. I am sure we all want a clean and tidy neighbourhood. Litter seems to be everywhere, especially with the present ad-hoc refuse collections.
The properties that are standing open are receiving our attention and in some cases, we will have to involve the health department as the yards are very overgrown and I have reports of rats.
Also, our park needs some extra maintenance. I am asking for some help on Saturday 12 September to tackle the weeds and clear the brick paving. So to all those that say let me know when you need help, I am taking you up on your offer. If we can meet at 10h00 for two hours we can make a difference. Let’s get our park ready for summer.
Flower Pots Needed
Finally, do you have a large flower pot you want to get rid of? I am looking for one or two to put by the guardhouse at Kroton Street as we want to also make the entrance more attractive.
If there is anything you want tackled in the area, please let me know.
We welcome Athelie to the committee. She will be assisting Surine and Lloyd with the finances, and also thank you to Roxanne who will be taking over the CKN website. As soon as it is migrated to a new host, there will be a lot of photos to share.
