OUR VISION

Our City's built heritage resources are precious, non-renewable, finite and irreplaceable. Through its core activities of Tours, Research, Education, Conservation and Activism, the Johannesburg Heritage Foundation aims to protect our rich and varied heritage of Johannesburg and its associated social history, for the use and enjoyment of both current and future generations.

World War 1 Monument damaged by fire

In 2014 the JHF cleaned it up planted the trees behind to create a screen and got the Darras shopping centre involved in assisting with maintenance. Pick-it-Up undertook weekly clean-ups.

The centre was sold on a year later to someone else and despite the  efforts of ward councillors this significant piece of heritage in a public place has been allowed to deteriorate to such an extent . Fires have broken the massive granite bowl.

The small area in front is always crowded indicating the desperate need for open space and for the City’s Management to find  a sustainable way of keeping the place clean and shelter for the homeless as the nights get colder.
