Unsightly Poles

Many Swanland residents will be horrified by the intended erection of huge poles to be erected by MS3, who should be made to share KCOM's underground infrastructure. Apparently KCOM are required to > share by law but have not been approached by MS3. Sometimes the poles maybe erected alongside existing poles - see pic. In other areas MS3 have been followed by Connexin who then install their own poles so the problem will just multiply.

THEY DO NOT NEED PLANNING PERMISSION FOR THE POLES ! And you thought you lived in a democracy ?

Some very worthwhile local Charities
Swanland School Nairobi
CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young)
Fishermans Mission

Supports a children's school in Kenya to transform the lives of children living in poverty to give them a better future.
An amazing 97% of funds go directly to support schools and education projects in both slum and rural areas in and around Nairobi, Kenya.

Equipping future generations to fend for themselves is better than just giving aid as many charities do.


Several years ago a Swanland family tragically lost a young child from a sudden and unexpected heart attack. After their initial shock his parents set about doing something constructive in his memory and to help prevent other fatalities.

The charity funds free heart tests and the provision
of Defibrillators around the village

Fishing is NOT PERMITTED on the pond, even with a rod license. If you see anyone fishing and feel comfortable please point out the signs, if this conversation turns abusive call 101. Duck Food Signs in the pond highlight the importance of feeding the ducks with grain. Bread pollutes the pond water and is less healthy for ducks. Healthier food grain is available from the Peppertree florist. The fish feed themselves!
