Cleanup on Workers’ Day

A group consisting mainly of  residents of the South African Astronomical Observatory spent an hour on Saturday morning cleaning up the path from Observatory to the pedestrian bridge over the Black River, between the Observatory and Valkenberg Hospital. They filled a dozen bags of rubbish and recyclables plus half a wheelie bin of broken glass. With the help of their local conservationist James Cooper they anticipate that any remaining wood, which might be attractive for making campfires, will be removed in the near future.

We hope that this will begin to make this area safer for the general public.
