– Chris Geldenhuys, Convenor

On a wonderful Spring morning, the Pringle Bay Hack Group gathered in the Point area, again for the Rooikrantz and Australian Myrtle which are still a serious threat in that area. We have hacked the verges of Hangklip Road between Bell Road South and North. Due to the extent of the invasive vegetation we will have to return again.

The following hackers performed the hack on 25 September: John Whitehead, Edward Silberbauer, Sue Folb, Ilse Meyer, Tom Dreyer, Andy James, Anthony and Hillary Harris, Japie Krige, Frik Potgieter, Charles Hector, Andree Henning, Ulli Niemand, Willem Stiglingh, Marita Grobbelaar, and Jenny Parsons together with Chris Geldenhuys.

A special word of thanks for the contribution and support provided by the members of the Betty’s Bay Hack to the Pringle Bay Hack. Their efforts and encouragement are, as always, greatly appreciated.

Dave and Helena provided the ever necessary mid-morning refreshments. Thank you! A special word of thanks again to Peter and Joyce of the Mini Mark for the generous donation of tea and sandwiches – as always, greatly appreciated by all.

The next monthly hack will be on Sunday 30 October 2016. As usual we will meet on the pavement opposite Drosters Centre, in Central Avenue, Pringle Bay, at 08:30 whereafter we will proceed to the hack site. The hack ends at 11:30. Everyone who would like to help rid Pringle Bay of alien vegetation is welcome. Hacking tools are provided. Contact Chris at (028) 273 8588, or just turn up at the meeting point.
