Meet leader:  Penny Ludwig  tel 082 959 1112   / email:

There is a lot of invasive Crofton weed growing in and next to the lower Dome stream.  It is flowering now, so this is our chance to weed out the large bushes before they seed and to look for seedlings and new growth.

You won’t be able to see them, but there are some large Crofton bushes growing next to the stream to the right of the tree.

Please come and support the on-going battle against alien vegetation in our kloofs.  And after a hard mornings weeding,  you’ll still have time for a swim in the pools.

Bring gloves and garden tools .  There are some spare tools available if you don’t have anything suitable.

We’ll meet at the Dome parking lot at 8.15 to leave at 8.30.

Message from our Chairman:

To all Mountain club members in Gauteng - please note that due to some attempted access to our properties during lockdown we would like to reiterate that access is suspended until relevant lockdown regulations deem it legal.  Currently, we suspect that this will only be in level 2 or 1 as both inter-provincial travels is required (Magaliesberg is largely in the North-West) and, more critically, hiking and climbing are not considered essential activities.

Your understanding is greatly appreciated.
Kind Regards
Stephen Hoffe
