    GENEROUS assistance from the community and a garden service have helped solve the problem of an overgrown park in Lennox Estate.

    And, after an appeal for generous donors to come forward, Snapshot Garden Services have offered to maintain the lawns in Pioneer Place on a monthly basis – free of charge!

    Buffalo City Municipality have also visited the site and offered their services, after GO! & Express contacted them for comment, following our news article last month. Grass overgrowth had become so bad, that children playing there were not even visible to the eye.

    Some members of the public had even complained that they had seen ticks and snakes in the grass.

    Faith Khanyisa Fathula, who watches over the children and looks after the keys for the fenced park, eventually hired garden services to cut the grass.

    In our last article, we appealed to the community for donations of weed-eaters and mowers.

    Snapshot’s Verena Bezuidenhout said: “I saw the article in the GO! and thought, if we can help these kiddies, we are on the right wavelength.

    “The kids can play now.”

    Snapshot owner Kevin Bezuidenhout said he had committed his company to cutting the grass monthly to help the community.

    Fathula expressed her gratitude for the generous donation: “Wow! This is 100%.

    “They have already come three times to help and the park is looking great,” she said.

    Community members have also donated a mower and a weed-eater.
