Thank you for all the generous donations. Paul continues to focus his efforts on the main road, the Common as well as the beach. Today (11th), he also cleaned (9 bags) between the 2 sports fields. I sponsor all bank fees, Paypal commissions, Exchange fees, black and recycling bags, supervision, assistance etc. All funds go directly to Paul at R250 per day, or as donations to others who assist in cleaning Noordhoek. We have enough funds left until the last day of September. Donations can be made via this site, or via my personal account. (FNB current account 62076265563 Branch:202309)
Remember this is a project by the community for the community to feel free to provide feedback.
If you wish for Paul to continue cleaning post September, feel free to donate.
Paul is in a good routine now, where he starts at 7am on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday to assist the Toad Nuts with measuring and moving Leopard Toads from "Toadsaver buckets" across the road. After this he cleans Silvermine road, main road, the Noordhoek Common and Beach. During the storms, our 3.5km beach was covered in plastic etc. He also continues to clean glass, wire and dog poo on a daily basis. I personally love going to a dog poo free beach, and believe that people are much more likely to clean after their dogs when the beach is spotless. On Thursdays and Saturdays Paul cleans the main road, Common and Beach. We also clean SeaCottage Rd on a regular basis, since once of our main sponsors live there:)
On the 7th, 8th and 9th of August we cleaned OuKaapseweg where we cleaned more than 100 bags of plastic. Lute from Little Gardens as well as a few other residents very kindly took all the bags to the dump. Lute continues to assist with bags.
Noordhoek Football Club received a R2500 donation which they used towards tracksuits for the 60 Masiphumelele children which they sponsor. In return they will clean around the sports-fields and into the wetlands for an hour before practice on Tuesdays.
On the Verge received a R2500 donation because they do amazing work at cleaning verges and making them beautiful. In addition to this, they clean the very toxic creeper "Bobbejaantou (Afrikaans)" thereby saving the lives of horses in Noordhoek.
In order to raise funds for the NFC, a local movie maker, Mark Chipps from Goosebump Production, local famous musician Donovan Copeley from Hotwater, as well as a few other local movie makers will join forces to create a short movie about the amazing coach Spencer who is a retired lecturer and volunteer who has mostly been self-funding the club. I hope to use this movie to raise funds for NFC.
In addition to the above, I am in discussion with Tony Budden, a Noordhoek local from the Hemporium as well as the talented local Graphic Artist Lynne Hoskins to create some really cool Noordhoeked Tshirts made from hemp! Guy from the Village Roast is considering selling these, but only if they are seriously cool and if the other partners like them. All funds will go towards the project. Watch this space : )
I continue to donate my time, bank fees, all bags, equipment, clothing etc. with love, because I love Noordhoek.
Thank you for your support!

In order to stretch our budget, Paul will work only Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. He starts at 7a.m. to assist with the Leopard Toads, and at the same time he cleans Main and Silvermine Road, after this he will clean Village Lane, the Noordhoek Common and Beach. We have funds for him to work until the end of August.
If anyone is looking for a gardener or cleaner, he is available Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, please contact me.
Thanks again to the Noordhoek Community Sponsors who donated so generously.
Coach Spencer from the Noordhoek Football Club has asked the Coaches and players to join Paul, Juanita and myself at 11h00 at the Masi Bus-stop tomorrow so that we can all work together to CLEAN the entrance to Masi as well as the road going past Masi.
My aim is to raise awareness about Cleaning Noordhoek in general as well as to encourage the children to help clean weekly around the soccer fields.
In addition to cleaning, I would like to raise funds to buy each of the 60 children soccer tracksuits at R435 per tracksuit. My company Web-lingo has sponsored 5 tracksuits so far, so if anyone is in a position to assist, please feel free to pay directly into NFC's account, (Noordhoek FC, Std Bank Branch: 036009, Account: 073893889) or to Donate to this campaign. http://www.noordhoekfc.co.za/teams.php
