Good day Greymonters


Good day Greymonters

This is the first email you are receiving from your new Chairman. It is with much guilt that it has taken me this long.

We all have busy lives and I am really impressed with the commitment that has come from most of you to uphold what the old executive has managed to achieve in just three years.

I am privileged to be working with the new Greymont executives, who go far beyond their call of duty. The executives are Maureen, as Secretary, Tanja, our Treasurer, Martijn who deals with anything to do with the website and social media. Di who makes sure all queries relating to water/sewage, potholes and street signage and lighting are dealt with. Clive now deals with City Parks and Pickitup only. I will deal with all other related issues as well as over crowded houses, illegal businesses and the like.

I would like to thank all residents who kindly donated towards our new equipment, the brush cutter and lawnmower. A special thanks to Lew Geffen Suthebys, namely Brenda and Pieter who personally donated R1000. They have always come to the party when we, as a community, have needed assistance, especially financial. Fine and Country and Rawsons pledged/promised to make contributions which have, until now, not been fulfilled. What a difference it would make. Having said this, if you do have any spare cash to contribute towards the maintenance fund, it would be much appreciated. These two items were bought prematurely, as Robert, our maintenance guru, was robbed of the brush cutter. We have had to use funds from the monthly subs to purchase them. Please remember to reference your payments with MEQ and your name.
Our cost for the equipment was R11 759.52 and we have managed to raise R8 240 thus far, a shortfall of R3 519.52. Come on guys, that’s 100 residents donating R35,20!

The new equipment has now been insured for the sum of R99 per month thanks to Di for spending hours on the phone finding the right insurer!
