Tidy Towns | A Community Project, for the Community, by the Community!

    Tidy towns is a community project, for the community, by the community!

    The community-driven project aims to fix problem areas and bring the town back to the tourist destination it once was.

    Tidy Towns is a community-driven project that believes ‘together we can do so much more’. The lower South Coast community, from Shelly Beach to Margate, have been taking over the care of their beaches by replacing the paving and pathways and cleaning the beaches and grass areas.

    The entire Amanzimtoti Community has embraced the Tidy Towns concept after witnessing the success of the lower South Coast. While individuals are playing a vital role in the restoration and clean-up projects, it is the local businesses that are putting their money up to make sure the towns stay tidy.

    Tidy Towns have also established a relationship with their local municipality and are working towards bettering the community together by filling in the gaps where the municipality is unable to do so.

    The Amanzimtoti Community & Business owners get together once a month for a "hands on" clean of our main tourist areas.

    Tidy Towns have started a  'Adopt-a-spot’ project, whereby residents and businesses can beautify and maintain a piece of land close to their business or home.

    All monetary donations will go through the Lions Club of Amanzimtoti bank account, as they are a well-established, long-standing service organisation within the community.
