“This year we included a number of youth from the local township. Not only do they earn extra money but they are also taught skills,” said Barnard.

The Bothaville Neighbourhood Watch is also ready for Nampo 2017. The members plan to put in double shifts next week.

Barnard, who is also the spokesperson for the neighbourhood watch, said the organisation can be contacted to provide guards at specific locations, if need be.

The cleaning up of the town by volunteers is not limited to Nampo and continues throughout the year.
