Giffy Duminy our local street artist who did the mural in Village Road, was busy again with the permission gained by us from the Municipal authorities, to give this storm water area some life. The dassies in our area who frequent these drains for shelter and pop up to get a view now and again, was the inspiration.



We will unfortunately not be running our annual Light up the Night event in December this year, as our kind hosts CC& A have construction on the go and their gardens will be unavailable as a venue.  We are so grateful for their support over the past few festive seasons, enabling us to publicise our work and create a fundraising opportunity with the event.

Paul Fenton, owner of Kloof Lawnmower Centre, used his good relationship with suppliers, to secure a brand new lawnmower, built with a Tandem Inkunzi mower and Yamaha engine, valued at over R10 000, for the exclusive use of Keep Kloof Beautiful.

There are many areas in the Kloof CBD that need special attention, especially during the growing season, and this acquisition will allow KKBA to keep them manicured regularly and ensure the grassed verges are neat on an on-going basis.

We are proud of our Chairlady Carolyn Osborne, who was presented with their prestigious Community Award for her on going efforts with Keep Kloof Beautiful and various other community-related projects of which she gives of her time and energy so freely.

revamping the land by SPCA

The land near the SPCA sandwiched alongside the M13 and Village Road offramp, has been transformed with financing from the Dept Transport, to rehabilitate the land previously used by heavy road construction equipment storage. The before and after is obvious to all; a wonderful welcome to Kloof has been achieved with land contouring, instant lawn and planting of a glade of indigenous trees.  KKBA are delighted that our cries were heard!

Light up the Night Christmas community event

Deemed successful as a pilot project, despite being rained out 3 nights out of the five.

CC&A Insurance Brokers pulled out all the stops to enable this event to take place, and we hope the Kloof community will support it on the same dates this year 16-20 December.

Diarise NOW please.

Attached photos were taken by members of the Hillcrest Photographic Club. For those that missed out, it was a charming olde-worlde way for children to experience Christmas.


Our ADOPT A SPOT programme is soon to bear fruit, with local companies currently signing up for the sites that the municipality have given us permission to find sponsors for. Judges Walk, Humpy Bridge, the 3 islands in the CBD, one near the Catholic Church and at Kloof High School are some of these sites.

Wakefields Kloof branch, John Batchelor Attorneys, Kloof Auto, Kloof Car Sales, Chris Dalzell Landscapes, Pam Golding Kloof, Century 21, Boltfix and Samson are all on board as sponsors in 2017.


KKBA were the main recipients of publicity and promotional planning, using our theme of beautification of Kloof to inspire the activities on the day.

Six teams of Grade 8 pupils took part in a Cake Decorating Challenge, where they used their creativity to decorate cakes supplied by Village Mall SPAR, in a theme linked to the KKBA mission. The Winning Team who called themselves ICE & SLICE, were awarded spending vouchers from various sponsors.

The girls really went to a lot of trouble in their depiction of Kloof beautification in an individual and unique way.

Check out the flowering Dietes in the medians in Village Road, which, once the Spring rains arrive will be stunning.
