This time around we have no hired contractors, and we are completely dependent on YOU, the volunteer!


Here is your chance to join the last volunteer day on the Umgeni for 2016 and be part of the #BRU initiative.

At 8:00 am on Saturday 19th November volunteers will gather at Il Postino restaurant in the Dargle, to travel up to the upper Umgeni in convoy and do battle with bramble.

Various parties have donated or lent items such as knapsack sprayers and chemicals. The plan is to start at the upper boundary, and for a team to line up either side of the river, and to work downstream, spraying bramble plants alongside the river. You will have a “support vehicle” mixing and re-supplying knapsacks with Garlon spray.

Any additional volunteers will cut and paint wattle saplings that have re-grown, or assist with the erection of fencing stiles.

You will need to bring:

  • Hat and sunscreen
  • Plenty to drink
  • a picnic lunch
  • and if you have: a bushknife, knapsack or rose sprayer, a small bowsaw.

There is no need to RSVP, and you can decide to join at the last minute.

If you DO plan to attend it would be useful for planning purposes to know you are coming, so please do drop an e-mail to : with your cellphone number and first name, and we will add you to the whatsapp group.

If it rains, we will delay to the following day (Sunday 20th), and if that days is also hampered by weather we plan to re-group on Saturday 26th November…same time, same place. Postponement or other important info will be advised on the Natal Fly Fisher’s Club (NFFC) Facebook page and on the above whatsapp group.

We hope to see you there!
