Touwsranten Children benefit from community effort

The George Municipal Parks and Recreation division recently assisted a community action group established in the Touwsranten area with the repair of playpark equipment. The Seven Passes Initiative (Rural Youth Development Programme) has encouraged community members from Touwsranten to form a group that have taken ownership of their environment and are working together to provide a safe community for future generations and to contribute towards positive parenting.

The community members together raised funds to buy some of the materials needed for the playpark and older retired members of the group worked on the repairs themselves.  The George Parks and Recreations division assisted with playpark equipment.John Ruiters, Deputy Chairperson of the Committee said “ We can make a difference in our community. We want to work on the other play parks in our area so that all children can have a safe place to play.”

Councillor Marlene Viljoen, Ward Councillor for Ward 4 praised the community for standing up together, taking hands and making a difference.  “Everyone working together can make a difference. I hope this playpark is just the beginning of things to come for this community.”
