▢ Snyman Van der Vyver was appointed as the new broker.

▢ Solar panels were installed(this will result in savings on electricity.)

WPC will purchase a golf cart to assist with meal deliveries

▢ We are looking at possible bird proofing solutions to address the rock pigeon droppings and nesting problems.

▢ The clubhouse will be opening in the near future.

▢ The opening of our new frail care facility.

Eugene Jooste- "I see our responsibilities as Trustees, first and foremost, to ensure that our levies remain affordable and competitive. It is important that our residents are kept updated, especially when it comes to the finances - my intention, Covid permitting, is to hold regular Town Hall meetings in the clubhouse to inform our residents and listen to their proposals and issue.
