As co-organisers of the Fun Run, the WRA earned R3 400.00 for the the WRA. Councillor Andrea Crous, the principle organiser of the Fun Run, announced at a ceremony on 13th March 2013, that residents of Welgemoed were the biggest constituency involved in the Fun Run. So thanks you people of Welgemoed. Other residents' associations included Kenridge, Hoheizen, Loevenstein, Door de Kraal, Protea Valley and The Valley . Councillor Crous awarded all the other involved Residents' Associations smaller amounts. As the biggest resident association that turned out, Builders' Express agreed to do a park makeover. Proceeds of the Fun Run will go into the WRA accounts for other events.
The WRA / IVW are hosting a Funday with 7 other Residents' Associations in Ward 70.
The day is planned for 2 March 2013.
Everyone is welcome - a provisional program is available on the Projects page.
Here is an Introduction to the event from Andrea Crous, our ward councillor.
Ward 70 is one of the most naturally beautiful environments in the Metro! The Tygerberg Hills, Elsieskraal River, Majik Forest, a golf course, a wetlands and numerous parks and green areas comprises this beautiful area.
Maintaining these areas puts the City under a lot of strain. During the financial year of 2011/2012 the residents and associations of ward 70 drew up a 5 year plan to upgrade our parks and public open spaces. The upgrade will be done in collaboration with the City.
In order to assist with the upgrade, we will be organising a fund-raising event for Saturday 2 March 2013. This will consist of a fun run, a raft building competition, a potjiekos competition, kiosk and games for kids, and many more. Our goal is to have 3000 fun run / walk entries, 30 raft building entries and 20 potjiekos entries.
We kindly appeal to you to support the event.
For more information you can contact me on email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your support.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards Andrea

21 September 2012: this
morning, due to rain, we couldn't go to the park on the corner of Rheede and Goewerneur
Street to plant trees kindly donated by the Cape Town City Council. But the kids at the Welgemoed Pre Primary had a wonderful time
with Mr Lewis Afrika, who explained all of them how to plant a tree.
Our friendly Welgemoed Pick n Pay donated juices to the kids and
our ward Councillor Andrea Crous baked wonderful cup cakes for them (120!). --Francesca van der Werf
Council Officials, Residents Association members and Welgemoed Pre-Primary children (almost) plant trees. Andrea Crous, our intrepid cup-cake baker (and councillor) is in the red jacket.
