Frere Hall restoration
APROPOS `Plans unveiled for Frere Hall restoration` (April 14). I laud the Guardians Trust which has taken it upon themself to do the restoration work on Frere Hall. I feel it is the duty of all citizens to contribute in whatever capacity they can for reclaiming public spaces for the benefit of the common citizen.[TOP]
Besides monetary contribution, how we are treating the environment around us is also of great significance. The media houses should also allocate free airtime to raise public awareness on the importance of preservation of our culture, heritage and restoration of public spaces.
I was present at the event, and was really moved by the vote of thanksdelivered by Jameel Yusuf. He rightly suggested that the city be renamed f rom the `city of lights to the city of love, or the city of giving or the city of angels.
This is a great suggestion and more aptly describes its people whose generosity in giving is acknowledged, internationally.
