MID newsletter – September 2020

Dear Members,

As life slowly starts creeping towards ‘normal’ in Muizenberg, with the beachfront bustling on warm days, businesses reopening and the community coming out and initiating projects (more on this below), I’m cautiously optimistic that we may have overcome the worst of this devastating pandemic.

That said, we still see many residents and even business owners flouting social distancing and mask-wearing Covid-19 regulations. There have already been warnings from the powers that be that restaurants could be shut down again if there is non-compliance. The majority of establishments are fully compliant, but as always there are a few who flout the rules and thereby place the livelihoods – and indeed the lives – of others at risk.

We once again implore everyone in our little community to buckle down and stick to the regulations for what is hopefully ‘the last stretch’.

As things slowly normalise, the MID board has been busy with a range of projects. From the seemingly small task of weeding (which is very important to maintain infrastructure) to the larger task of finalising the rollout of the MID’s high-tech camera surveillance system, our volunteer directors and small team of staff have our work cut out for us!

The ‘to-do’ list can seem never-ending at times, but it gives the board great satisfaction to see projects come on-stream or come to fruition week after week.

We hope it also buoys you, the members to see these improvements, big and small, taking place.
