From the Park Manager

July is upon us which means that the first half of the year has already slipped by.  It also means that we are really into winter with its increased risks of illness. I would like to take the opportunity to ask that you look after your health during this time.

Having touched on health I simply cannot fail to, once again, draw your attention to the seriousness of Covid-19. South Africa is officially experiencing its third wave of infections and active cases in June doubled in under a month. Gauteng’s daily caseload accounts for about 60% of the national total and, at the time of writing, is driving the latest wave. I would like to appeal to everyone to please be vigilant and strictly adhere to Covid-19 protocols, they really are there for our protection.

Park Security have once again demonstrated their effectiveness. There have been no reported incidents in the Park. On behalf of the Park community I would like to extend my sincere gratitude and appreciation to our security team for really staying on top of things.

Despite overcast skies and the doom and gloom which is so often used to describe winter landscapes in South Africa, our gardens are still looking lovely. A big thank you to the landscaping and gardening team whose choice and care of our plants has paid off. Our gardens certainly cannot be
described as drab and grey this winter.

Two upgrades are also in the pipeline. Quotes have been sent out for the upgrade and refurbishing of the common area bathrooms as well as the centre isles at the booms which are much in need of a facelift.

The POPI Act comes into effect at the end of June 2021 and we have been hard pushed to get the processes in place.

A tribute to our Park Manager, Dave Edwards

It was with great sadness that we said goodbye to our Park Manager, Dave Edwards.

Dave was diagnosed with Covid-19 and admitted to hospital where he showed signs of a good recovery. Unfortunately, on 1st July, Dave took a sudden turn for the worse and passed away.

Dave, who has been with Kyalami Park since 2019 as Park Manager, was dedicated, hard-working and willing shared his years of experience with the Board, owners and tenants alike. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he remained polite and pleasant even in the most trying of circumstances.

The Board of Trustees of Kyalami Park extend their heartfelt condolences to his family. He will be sorely missed by all.
