Disappointed with catwalk neglect

The writer took this picture, which she says shows the “utter neglect” in various areas of the catwalk

Lorna Farrow, Noordhoek

On Wednesday June 22, my three children, who are visiting me from Australia, and I took a walk along the Fish Hoek catwalk, from the restaurant end towards the Sunny Cove end onto the rocks.

It was my first walk there in a long time. It was a really beautiful day, but l was very distressed and disappointed to see the utter neglect in various areas of the walk so l took photos of the mess.

Is it not possible for the powers that be to get a gardener or two to clean it all up and keep the areas from being an eyesore. I should imagine that tourists to Fish Hoek take a walk there and it spoils the beauty of the area being in such a messy state.

Come on, Fish Hoek, surely you can do better than this?

The Echo made several attempts to get comment from the City of Cape Town, but it did not respond by the time of going to print.

Lorna Farrow is appealing to “the powers that” be to appoint a gardener to clean up the catwalk area in Fish Hoek.
