Local businesses challenged to clean-up showdown

01 December 2017 | Society

The Hospitality Association of Namibia (HAN) Coastal Task Team has challenged all local accommodation establishments and businesses to participate in a clean-up.

The showdown will take place in Swakopmund between 07:00 and 13:00 on 2 December.

“Initially we thought of picking up litter but this has been done by so many initiatives. We as team are challenging all accommodation establishments to clean the area around them as well as a little more.

“At the same time we would also like to challenge and engage the entire business community of Swakopmund to do the same,” said Anett Kötting of the HAN Coastal Task Team.

She asked that locals sweep the pavements and streets in front of their businesses and even the block their business is located on.

“Let us all be proud of Swakopmund and let’s do this together. Be in the street and engage with your businesses next door,” she said.

All participating establishments and businesses are requested to post their cleaning photos on their Facebook pages using #Swakopmund Municipality.
