Safe Space ready for winter

Since opening its doors in July 2018, the City’s Safe Space has had numerous success stories and helped assist 450 homeless residents like Craig, get the help and support they need to get off the streets.

Plans are now in place to get the area ready for its first winter. Extra blankets and waterproof sleeping bags have been ordered and the cleaning of ducts along the Culemborg Bridge has been requested, to help minimise leaks and flooding.

Other shelters and registered non-profit organisations should submit applications for the City’s Winter Readiness Programme by 5 April 2019. This year, the City has set aside R700 000 to supplement the available resources for those organisations that provide shelter for street people.

Executive Mayor Dan Plato with some of the local flower sellers after unveiling therestored Lightfoot Memorial. Archdeacon Lightfoot fought against injustice and championed the rights of destitute and vulnerable communities, many of whom were emancipated slaves in the late 1800s. There was once a regulation that no person of colour was allowed up Government Avenue in the Company’s Garden unless they were ‘respectfully attired.’ Archdeacon Lightfoot fought against this regulation and had it changed so that all people of the early city were able to make use of the Company’s Garden and Government Avenue regardless of their social status. The special project to restore the weather-worn monument, headed by Councillor Dave Bryant, began at the end of 2018.
