The BMW Motorad weekend is upon us and already the village is a hive of activity. Following the public meetings to inform Clarenites of the event, some changes to the plan have been made.

1) Activities will be centred along the Square and Clarens Xtreme only. Whilst the concept of a village wide event, particularly along Roos & Van der Merwe streets, is something the organisers are aiming at, they’ve put that particular concept on ice for 2015.

2) The appeal to consider the quality of the stadium grass for events planned for the stadium in the immediate future was also heard and there will be no camping at the stadium (or any other facility for that matter).

3) The road closure indicated on the plan for the Western side of the Square had been cancelled; traffic will be allowed through but no parking will be allowed. The Eastern side of the Square will be closed off for vehicles with pedestrian access only. The Dihlabeng traffic department will be in attendance to direct traffic around the Western side of the Square
