Residents needed to join the Lonehill Observer team

We have an urgent need for willing residents to join our Observer team

For over 10 years, the Lonehill Observers have provided an important link between Fidelity and the LRA. Observers go out in the company of a Fidelity Reaction officer and do visual checks on a select number of guards in Lonehill, Beverly and Pineslopes, ensuring that Fidelity meets and upholds the standard and quality of guarding.

Observer shifts last an hour and volunteers can choose either a day or night shift. A continuous roster is published each month, showing which duties, you have volunteered for. Volunteers may be asked to fill in occasionally when another volunteer is on leave, etc.

Observer duty gives residents the chance to give a little back to the community.

Residents who can spare an hour of their time can contact Caroline Forbes on +27 82 929 1510 for further information.

Beautification Project, we need your help!

Thank you to the resident of Lonehill who made a donation to the Lonehill beautification project. Bidim to the value of R2000.00 was donated to prevent weeds from growing through the paving once laid.







We would also like to thank GROW WILD NURSERY who donated 4 cubes of compost along with 6, 40 litre trees to be planted in the beds.

In addition to the new beds, the LRA would like to raise funds to pave the sidewalk running from Main Road to Concourse Crescent and from Main Road down to Capricorn Drive in Lonehill East.

The cost of these pedestrian footpaths cannot be covered by the LRA and we are appealing to residents and businesses in the area to assist with funding.
Funds needed are as follows:
Main Road to Concourse Crescent – R170 000
Main Road to Capricorn Drive – R200 000

Residents and businesses are urged to sponsor portions of the pathway.  The pathway costs R500.00 per linear meter, however residents can donate whatever is affordable.  Each donation counts!

Monies raised will be allocated accordingly and as soon as we have the full funding for a section, we will start with paving.  Residents and businesses can donate as follows:

Lonehill Residents Association, Standard Bank, Branch: 00 99 53, Account: 0233 89745.  Reference: PAVING LONEHILL.

We will run weekly updates on monies raised on our Facebook page.  For further information on this project please contact our Estate Manager on or 072 455 4607.
