The Noordhoek Common is a precious piece of our community, used, loved and enjoyed by many of us. In order to preserve it for our future a team of local volunteers, the Common Committee, protects its interests. Throughout the year there are plenty of ongoing projects involving tree planting, water management, grass mowing, alien plant control, river protection and dog poo cleaning. In order to facilitate all this we raise funds by hiring our Common for film shoots, Noordhoek riding events and horse grazing. We are also assisted by donations of skills, labour and tools from members of the community. Despite all the effort put into generating income through our own means we fall short by approximately R10,000 each year and need to use alternative means of income generation. So we are reaching out to the community and users of the Common to raise funds. By joining the Friends of the Common Club you will directly help the ongoing maintenance of the Common.
Club members donate R50 per month to the Club. This enters you into a monthly prize draw — a club member is picked at random to receive the monthly R500 prize. The remaining money goes towards maintaining the Noordhoek Common. The Common’s budget and spending are published on our website and all donations are fully accounted for.
