Conservancy Donor Request

Dear Potential Donor The Ramsgate Conservancy has developed over the last fourteen years as a deep-rooted environmental institution within the Ramsgate community and the KZN South Coastal area. Over this time period we have raised local funding to create the existing infrastructure we have today which includes the Whale Viewing Deck, the Whale Deck Eco Centre (WDEC) building, the Eco Tourism Centre Information Office (ETC) and a wheelchair friendly pathway linking the two buildings. We now need to embark on various projects to enable better conservation, environmental education, eco-system preventive management and improve the WDEC and ETC sites which will benefit our local residents and attract our holiday visitors year on year. The most prominent urgency now is the acquiring of funding for operational needs and priorities which will complement the capital investment which will give Ramsgate the leading edge in Conservation on the KZN South Coast. Our appeal to you is to read the attached proposal and needs for donor funding and decide whether you or your business want to invest in the future growth of conservation in our community. If so, it will be a pleasure to meet with you to discuss our mission and in particular, the areas in which you may be interested and willing to assist with funding and/ or sponsorship. 2019 is an important year for the commencement of this endeavour to plan, identify, prioritise, finance and implement projects over a period of at least three years. Our target is to raise R150,000 to enable us to achieve our projected three-year goals. We request that anonymous or publicised donations be made direct to the Ramsgate Conservancy banking account via a direct EFT. A PBO donation certificate will be issued for all donations made as per Section 18A of the Tax Act of 1962... read more

Ramsgate Ratepayer’s and Residents Assocation

Newsletter – March 2019 Ramsgate Ratepayers and Residents Association (RRRA)  Dear Fellow Ramsgaters, 2018 was an eventful year, fortunately, ending in a December season, where there were no major issues with water and electricity and by all accounts, the tourism industry had a good season. It would appear thus far, that 2019 will be a busy year.  Water outages: As residents of Ramsgate know, our village is very vulnerable to the breakdowns in the municipal supply of water by UGU. As highlighted previously, this is as a consequence of several factors. The first is an ageing infrastructure, which has been poorly maintained and much of which, has been acknowledged by UGU as needing replacement. The second is that Ramsgate’s reservoirs are the last in the main delivery line from the Umzimkulu pumping station and therefore, are always the first to lose supply and the last to be restored. The third, is some poor engineering in the design of the local infrastructure, making it difficult to restore supply locally and refill the reservoirs, after prolonged outages. As you may be aware, the RRRA has, over recent years and with very limited resources, built up a stock of 5 000 litre tanks, which are strategically placed around Ramsgate during periods of prolonged water outages. These tanks are for the benefit of all residents to refill bottles. The water is obtained from reliable sources but it is recommended, nevertheless, that the water from these points be boiled before consumption. It is important to note, that the UGU tankers are responsible for replenishing the static tanks, but if the drivers are on strike or being intimidated, the RRRA will endeavour to fill the tanks, using the trailer and pump that it has secured the use of, via a rental cost. Only bottles, up to... read more
