realisation of the set objectives within the Municipality.

As part of the engagement ,the ECLB sought to establish if the Municipality was affected by the abuse of alcohol and if thre was a need fr an intavantion in the area; and it consistently appeared tht thre was a need fr a concerted intervention in the area .Subsequent to the
introductory meeting, successive sessions were convened to concretise a programme of intervention & ensure tht all stakeholders were on board .Henceforth ,a collective of stakeholders hv agreed to roll out a comprehensive programme in the SRV ,which will involve community engagement & sporting programmes. There is a legitimate hope that this intervention wil make a dent in the reduction of harm tht is caused by the abuse of alcohol usage in our communities ,families etc
