Residents, Councillors and members of Agapé Congregation in Ward 17 took to the streets on Saturday morning in an annual joint venture to uplift Ward 17. Potholes were repaired, the environment benefitted from a “pic-it-up” exercise and grass and overgrowth were cut following an above average rainfall season.
This was all part of Agapé Congregation’s annual environment day. The programme was organised by Cllr Tanya Rothman and saw close to 100 residents turning up or at least contributing towards the project. One of the most deserving operations in the programme was the repair of a dangerous pothole in Cuckoo Avenue by at least 20 enthusiastic young “contractors”. In spite of badly congested traffic during the early Saturday morning peak hour, motorists were waving in appreciation and gratitude.
