A Brand New Bus Shelter and Taxi Facility!!!!

Vanwyksdorp can now boast a new and much needed asset. In a ribbon-cutting ceremony held on Friday 12 October in Greenhills Vanwyksdorp, the Executive Mayor of Eden officiated the opening ceremony of the Vanwyksdorp bus and taxi shelter kindly sponsored and financed by Mr Pieter Coetzee of Assegaay Bosch Ranch.

For many years, community members waiting for transportation to schools and towns bore the brunt of rainy wet days and scorching sunshine to get to their respective destinations. As a priority need for pupils and the elderly, Mr Pieter Coetzee offered to build a facility which would not only alleviate the situation, but which would have far-reaching benefits in leaving a lasting legacy for the community to take ownership and custodianship of.

 Building of the state of the art facility began approximately 2 months ago when the foundations were laid on a vacant plot kindly donated by the Kannaland Municipality. In a very short period of time, the bricks were laid, the windows in and the roof on. The completion of the shelter also included a pretty landscaped garden complete with trees, shrubs, aloes and even beautiful roses, kindly overseen by Pieter’s wife, Hanna Coetzee.

For the GCBR, this marks a concerted contribution to meeting the UNESCO MAB objectives of community development and involvement in a Biosphere Reserve, for which the Gouritz Cluster Biosphere remain eternally grateful to Mr Pieter Coetzee for this incredible gesture to uplift our people in the biosphere domain.

A further thank you needs to be extended to the following people and organisations:

The staff of Assegaay Bosch Ranch who so willingly offered their time and effort to make this project a huge success. Thanks to Jonathan Jantjies for providing the sound system on the day. A special word of thanks to Buks and Marnel for their part in the organisational arrangements, Abie and Jenny for the snacks. A VERY special thank you to the builder George Rex whose meticulous attention to detail created this special facility and who contributed R12 000 towards the project. Another special word of thanks to Hanna Coetzee for the beautiful garden surrounding the bus shelter facility. Thank you to Oubaas Opperman for taking on the responsible task of taking care of the building and maintaining it into the future.

And finally another HUGE thank you to Mr Pieter Coetzee for ensuring a dream come true for many and for truly making such an inspirational gesture of goodwill to the continued humanitarian efforts of all.
