We believe that we are better together and we endeavour to establish partnerships between key sectors of our local community to see our vision of a prosperous city emerge.

Love Howick Projects

THE STREET

STORE

There are so many great efforts to clothe and feed the poor across our communities but the Street Store concept is a little different in that it aims to give our ‘shoppers’ the opportunity to feel what it is like to choose their own clothes.

RENOVERGE

Project

The Renoverge Project is a coordinated approach to restoring beauty to the CBD, exits/entrances to Howick and Main Road areas.

PROMOTION CLIP

Love Howick ‘RENOVERGE PROJECT’ launches again!

Thanks to the generous contribution from local businesses, Love Howick NPC have secured the necessary funds to put their TEAM IN RED (Pictured here) back onto the streets of Howick to clean things up for the next three months.

This motivated team are ready to give the town a much needed ‘sprucing up’ – clearing gutters, brush cutting verges, landscaping garden areas, repairing broken manhole covers. We need Howick to get behind them and DONATE towards this great initiative to ensure that this project succeeds! Contact info@lovehowick.com to get details of plants & equipment needed, or bank details for monetary donations. Section 18A Certificates will be given for all donations over R1000.

RENOVERGE PROJECT VISION: The Renoverge Project is a coordinated approach to restoring beauty to the CBD, exits/entrances to Howick and Main Road areas. Our vision is to simply ‘make Howick beautiful again’, attracting potential investors and a much-needed boost to our local economy; while at the same time giving residents a community to be proud of. A coordinated effort between all sectors is needed to achieve this in a sustainable way, and so your involvement is needed in the following areas:

1. ADOPT A SPOT: Businesses & community groups are encouraged to take ownership over a demarcated area identified in the ‘Renoverge Zone’. This will require them to ensure that this zone is kept clean, free from litter & weeds, Love Howick litter bins are purchased and serviced, that all paving is restored to working order, and general maintenance is undertaken. Opportunities for landscaping garden areas are also encouraged.

2. SIGNAGE: Donations towards the LOVE HOWICK signs planned for the exits/entrances of Howick.

3. LOVE HOWICK LITTER BINS: Be a part of sponsoring a cement bin (R2000 each) along pedestrian routes within the Howick CBD and Main Road areas. Our phase one goal is to purchase 50 bins for Howick CBD!

Let’s make Howick beautiful. TOGETHER WE CAN!
