Tenikwa maintenance team got stuck in at the Kurland Edu-Centre in Kurland Village to clean up the playing area which was overgrown.  Now the children have a nice, newly mowed area to play outdoors in the great sunny weather we are experiencing in Plettenberg Bay this summer.

Have a look at the Before and After photo’s to see what a difference it made. (And if you have an old lawn-mower lying around that you no longer use, please consider donating it to the Kurland Edu-Centre.)
