Notes

It took a while for the game to find the waterpoint, but a lot now drinking there, and is essential to keep it going. The upper vlei has been burnt ( Luckily stopping before the borehole) and is greening up – good game sightings of sable, eland and zebra on green

Meeting was held but not well attended – need a follow up meeting and then a parks liaison meeting, so as to get program, volunteers all on track.

Apologies if any donations left out – all record off sheet left in pump room
