The first leg of the orientation tour for the Overstrand junior town council started in the Kleinmond area on 8 April 2014 and the second leg to Stanford and Gansbaai on 13 May 2014 was another great success.
The tour was an initiative of the Overstrand Municipality to expose the region’s young leaders to various municipal services, which will contribute to their development and ensure an investment in their future.
The junior town council was pleasantly surprised when Mayor Nicolette Botha-Guthrie, accompanied by the Municipal Manager Coenie Groenewald, arrived at the Enlighten Education Trust.
Addressing the learners, the Mayor said, “You are honoured to be the first group with whom I share my surprise project. I am thrilled to share this with you now, the community of Overstrand at large will only learn about it at a later stage.
