Pikkewyntjies Jungle Gym

We have a lovely playground at Pikkewyntjies with a green lawn, busily growing trees donated by the Harold Porter Botanical Garden and paths for riding the plastic motor bikes. We also have a sandpit and swings and a slide and a ladder onto a platform with a climbing net. We don’t have a really-truly jungle gym.

July 14th is Mandela Day when NPO’s ask the warm-hearted South African public to help them with an improvement. This year it isn’t safe so we put the word out, with little hope of a response, that a jungle gym, new or second-hand would be a dream come true for our Pikkewyntjies. For Zaan it would be a solution to the problem of under-exercised muscles as jungle gyms have climbing walls and fireman’s poles and tunnels.

Do you know what happened? Some Moms and Dads with small children and their friends who don’t have their own children have clubbed together to give our children a gym with all the bells and whistles Zaan wants? Never in our wildest imaginings did we expect this, and we are over the moon. We’ll post pics when it’s in place.
