JEFFREYS Bay has joined a growing number of towns in the country which are adamant on cleaning up their environment.
Forging bonds with the organisation called "Dorp van Drome”, local resident Deon Goosen took the initiative to contact the founder of the organisation, Theuns Coetzee from Bonnievale.
After hearing about the project that Coetzee has so successfully steered throughout the country Goosen got in touch with him and was told the town has to be registered with the organisation.
"This is now done and we are proud to say Coetzee will be visiting us soon to explain how it works,” said Goosen.
National radio station RSG's presenter, Amore Bekker, has also been punting the project, and this has raised major interest country-wide.
"Basically what it means is that residents and businesses work hand in hand with the local authorities in a bid to clean and beautify the town,” said Goosen adding that as the local council has no funds, all expenses will be for the individual's pockets.
However, he emphasised that not all beautifying needs money.
Coetzee is set to visit the town on Wednesday July 4 to explain the pros and cons. The meeting will take place at 6pm at the Mentors Country Estate and all interested parties are invited.
Although there is no entry fee donations to cover Coetzee's expenses will be accepted.
His accommodation and meals have been sponsored by Mentors.
Goosen hopes a committee that will steer the project will be elected at the meeting.
