This was another big week for the Ekhaya Lothando pre-school in Masiphumelele. After receiving the required permission from the city building inspectors the foundations of the new buildings were scheduled to be laid on Monday. Since we last reported on progress there has been a run of miserable winter weather that has left everyone wondering if winter will ever end. We have even seen snow on Table Mountain.
Great credit to the guys on the ground then for getting the site ready to receive the cement.
Sadly the day got off to a bad start with news of the cement truck having broken down somewhere near Ottery. So a few frustrated faces were left to double check the plans for the day. At least it gave a little more time to source much needed wheelbarrows and clear the front year ready for the delivery.
It all came good in the end. A repaired truck arrived around midday and the guys were soon in action pouring cement. With a week of sunshine forecast now that Spring is here it looks like good progress will be made.
