proud to have people like that associated with the city and giving them these
base stations to work from is our way to say thank you and acknowledge what
they are doing”.

Plain, this is a promise we made two years ago to them that we would launch
this base station when the Mitchells Plain base volunteer group was our
volunteer group of the year. So we are delivering on this promise now and we
