GWELO, Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 16, 1966 — The Mayor, Clr CJ Roux, has ap­pealed to peo­ple both in the res­i­den­tial and in­dus­trial ar­eas to try to im­prove the ap­pear­ance of their prop­er­ties. If they co­op­er­ate, he says, it will help a great deal to im­prove the ap­pear­ance of the town.

Per­mis­sion has been given to the youth move­ment at Gwelo to use the old strip road be­tween Athlone Drive and the Gwelo River on the Sal­is­bury Road for a cy­cle and box car race for young peo­ple on a day dur­ing the Christ­mas school hol­i­days. The coun­cil was told by the sec­re­tary of the move­ment that this is one project in a se­ries of ac­tiv­i­ties which have been ar­ranged to keep as many young peo­ple as pos­si­ble off the streets and “out of mis­chief” dur­ing the hol­i­days.

The Rhode­sia Mo­tor Boat As­so­ci­a­tion has al­lo­cated the power boat tri­als re­gatta to the Gwelo Club — the ten­ta­tive date for this func­tion be­ing De­cem­ber 10. The club has been given con­trol over the main water of White­wa­ters Dam on this date. Give way signs will be erected at the in­ter­sec­tions of Ninth, Eighth, Sev­enth, Sixth and Fifth Streets with Al­lan Wil­son Av­enue at Gwelo at a cost of about £50.

Clr JR Redmond pointed out that be­cause traf­fic used Al­lan Wil­son Av­enue as a main thor­ough fare a num­ber of ac­ci­dents had oc­curred at these in­ter­sec­tions. When next year’s es­ti­mates are con­sid­ered, con­sid­er­a­tion would be given to the ex­ten­sion of the dual car­riage­way from the in­dus­trial sites turn off to the Bata Shoe Com­pany en­trance, and to the pos­si­ble con­struc­tion of a dual car­riage­way from the Selukwe rail cross­ing to Thorn­hill High School.

The in­ten­tion of the Lions Club to erect “Wel­come to Gwelo” signs on ap­proach roads to the town have been agreed to in prin­ci­ple. The Umvuma Road at Gwelo will be sur­faced shortly.

Twelve food stalls will be erected at the Monomo­tapa Beer­hall at a cost to the coun­cil of $410.Six fruit and veg­etable stalls will be built in Mkoba No 2 town­ship. The rent for these would be £2 a month.
