Attention all Joggers and Walkers

It seems like for many walkers and joggers that the new colour for outfits is dark. This makes them less visible in the winter evenings and mornings, and puts their lives at risk.
Yesterday, two people were hit by a motor vehicle on the R102, while walking on the side of the road.
Please consider using a reflective belt or vest to make yourself visible to traffic on the road.

In a recent High Court Judgment in East London, it was ruled :

It has been common practice that Neighbourhood Watches to send information via social media platforms, although it is an effective means of warning members and residents of certain dangers, the use of this information without verification of the information can and will lead to civil claims against the Police department. All information received by a police official, as a rule has to be personally verified, by the police official and after a preliminary investigation and verification of the facts, a member may proceed with the necessary action.

It was a lovely fresh morning when about 1000 walkers got on their way. Five kilometres of pavement and beach lay ahead. There were young and old, people in wheelchairs who made friends along the way. At the end, all competitors received a medal. Bill Smith, the CPF Chairman, who was the starter, said that everyone was a winner. Funds raised were donated to the Helderberg Hospice.
