Yesterday afternoon a small but select group of VIPs from City Parks Department and Kenridge The Hills Ratepayers Association attended the formal opening of the Duckpond Park's newly installed water point.
Ward councillor Andrea Crous, on behalf of the City, cut the ribbon while a toast was made firstly to the Parks officials who made it possible and to the future of tree irrigation.
In the spirit of Buy South African the toast was made in traditional Methode Cap Classique sparkling wine. Our unique picture captures the exact moment Councillor Crous cut the ceremonial ribbon.
