Thank you for granting me the opportunity to address Council as well as the residents of the Overstrand at large.  Ek wil graag vir u almal wat vandag hier teenwoordig is, en veral die aktiviste, uit my hart bedank.

It gives me great pleasure to address you at the first meeting of this Council at the start of a new term.

Ek moet in alle nederigheid hier erkenning gee aan my ouers, my familie en vriende wat my deur al die jare ondersteun het. Ek wil ook aan my Hemelse Vader dank uitspreek vir gesondheid en krag om ons werk te kan doen en dat Hy ons tot hiertoe gedra het.

Laat my toe om my voorganger te bedank vir die harde werk wat sy ingesit het in hierdie munisipaliteit.  Baie dankie vir u toegewydheid aan die inwoners en die lang ure van werk wat dit geverg het om Overstrand ‘n tuiste vir almal te maak.

As the dust came to rest after the recent hotly contested municipal elections, the first order of business for the newly elected councillors was to undergo an Orientation Programme that includes a Compulsory Workshop on Wednesday, 10 August 2016 followed by Council’s Inauguration Meeting set for Friday, 12 August 2016.

Municipal Manager, Coenie Groenewald, has advised  that the aim of the workshop is for Councillors to familiarise themselves with the Councillors’ Code of Conduct, Council’s Rules of Order for Internal Arrangements and specific legislation.  The gathering will also allow Councillors to work through the process and procedures regarding the election of Ward Committees (15 – 18 August 2016).  Moreover, Councillors will also focus on the Integrated Development Plan process and related matters.

At the Inauguration Meeting, the speaker, mayor, deputy mayor and whip will be announced.

On Monday, 8 August, Overstrand’s ladies in uniform announced their integrated plan to help put an end to the carnage on our roads and to protect both Overstrand's community and its wildlife. Hosted at the Zwelihle Community Hall, this event was planned to coincide with Women’s Month and was attended by 28 female representatives of Overstrand’s uniformed forces, representing Overstrand Protection Services, Hermanus SAPS, Provincial Traffic Services as well as Marine and Coastal Management.

Hosted at the Zwelihle Community Hall, this event was planned to coincide with Women’s Month and was attended by 28 female representatives of Overstrand’s uniformed forces.

Given their hectic schedules and workloads, the attendees seldom have the opportunity to socialise and exchange notes. On this occasion, though, they thoroughly enjoyed exchanging their “recipes” for being “bold and beautiful” and for “instilling trust in those they serve by being noble and trusting”. These sentiments were echoed in the closing address delivered by Neville Michaels, Director: Protection Services, who emphasised that female officers should always celebrate the special beauty they, as dedicated women in uniform, are privileged to portray.
