River clean-up hosted in George for Mandela Day

The George Municipality's Environmental Services and the Extended Public Works Programme (EPWP) staff joined the Breede-Gouritz Catchment Management Agency to clean up a dumping area in the Meul River in Thembalethu to do their bit for Mandela Day.

"Instead of the usual 67 minutes, the group has decided to give 100 minutes as it would have been Madiba's 100th birthday today," described George Municipality Spokesperson, Athane Scholtz.

"Staff from departments across the municipality will be doing their bit to better the lives of f local communities today."
