The Camposol Sector ‘C’ group held a Table Top sale at the square at Sector ‘B’ shops in front of the CRA hut and did a very brisk trade throughout the morning. All the clothes and bric a brac was donated by the residents of Sector ‘C’ and the volunteers were amazed at how much was there. The group of volunteers worked in shifts in the heat of the morning and then unfortunately the Police came at 12 noon and asked if we had a licence to sell the goods and even with protests saying it was used goods and for charity they insisted that we pack up and close down in 20 minutes. The clothes that were left over were donated to Noah’s Arc to help the abandoned and sick animals in the area and the bric a brac was kept for the group to do a sale in one of the resident’s gardens. We still managed to raise 368€ which is fantastic so thanks to everyone who donated, bought or helped the money will really help boost the funds for the group.
The volunteers have now started working on the sector after their summer break and have already pruned all the trees on the central reservation making it much safer for drivers to see when crossing the reservation and are now removing the base and laying plastic and large gravel. At the bottom of the perimeter road from the corner of C-7 leading up to the Masa house and then both sides of the sides of the road will be cleared very shortly with a JCB ready for membrane, gravel and plants. The next project after these will be clearing adjacent to the junction going to the roundabout C-4 also down to C-7.
The group is desperately short of volunteers to go out and complete these projects and there were only 5 people out on Monday which is a shame with so much good work having been done for it to fall away now. There are bacon sandwiches provided for all volunteers so if that is not an incentive I don’t know what is.!! If you feel you could help or know someone who can please contact Bernard or if you just want to turn up please keep looking at the notice board along the duel carriageway to see where the team are working next.
The group organiser Bernard Holland would like to start a Residents Clean Up Campaign so are asking all Sector ‘C’ residents to take responsibility for clearing their road of weeds including trees and bushes that overhang the pavement. There is a back pack weed sprayer and weed killer available to use to spray your road, perhaps a few residents in your street could get together and spend a morning using the sprayer.
Sector ’C’ is starting to look really good now but we desperately need more volunteers so please come and help and make your sector the nicest place to be on Camposol.
