DistrictMAIL HEARTBEAT OF THE HELDERBERG
Vicky se elmboog waar die baksteen haar getref het. Glasstukke het op die passasiersitplek van Vicky Kellerman se motor te lande gekom ná die baksteen daardeur gegooi is. Die brood wat sy na werk gekoop het is te sien op die passasiersitplek.
Grypdief slaan toe in Strand
Samaritaan het self ’n slagoffer van misdaad geword, toe hy ’n jong vrou tydens ’n grypaanval (smash and grab) wou help. Die vrou, Vicky Kellerman (24) van Gordonsbaai, was Vrydag omstreeks 18:45 op pad huis toe. Sy maak daagliks gebruik van Gordonsbaaiweg en moet oor die berugte aansluiting by Onverwachtstraat ry. “Ek het in die linkerbaan gery en ’n man, met sy rug na die pad op die sypaadjie sien staan. Warning bells het in my kop begin afgaan en ek wou na die regterbaan oorgaan. Die verkeerslig het na rooi verander en ’n kar langs my het my verhoed om bane te verander,” vertel Kellerman.
Die oomblik toe sy wegkyk, het die rower haar voorste passasiersruit met ’n halwe baksteen stukkend gegooi. Die baksteen het Kellerman op die elmboog getref en ook haar sy gekneus. Hy het sy bo-lyf by die venster ingedruk en haar handsak, wat op die grond by haar voete aan die bestuurskant gelê het, gegryp. Terwyl sy met die dief gestoei het vir haar handsak, het ’n onbekende motoris Kellerman te hulp gesnel. “Die man het die vermeende dief aan sy kraag uit my kar uitgeruk. Ek was so geskok. ’n Mens blank uit en ek het begin skud en begin huil. Toe het ek net my voet op die petrol gesit en weggery dat my wiele skree.” ’nGetraumatiseerdeKellermanhet,methaar handsak wat sy behou het, huis toe gery. Sy en haar pa is toe na die Gordonsbaai-polisiestasie om die saak te rapporteer. Daar het hulle die man wat Kellerman gehelp het, Phillip Jacobs,
raakgeloop. Hy het hulle vertel die rower het hom met ’n panga aangeval en sy makkers het hom ook met klippe bestook. Saam is hulle na die Strand-polisiestasie om die voorval daar aan te meld. Oor hoekom Jacobs Kellerman gehelp het, antwoord hy, “Ek is moeg van misdaad in die land. Almal sit net en doen niks, so ek moes iets doen. As ek in daardie situasie was, sou ek wou gehad het iemand moes my help.” Konst. Mbulelo Mafuna, woordvoerder van die Strand-polisie, het die voorval bevestig en gesê ’n saak van opsetlike saakbeskadiging en een van aanranding word ondersoek vir die grypaanval op Kellerman. Nog ’n saak van aanranding is geopen vir die aanval op Jacobs. Persone met inligting kan speurkonst. Dailon Adams of speurkonst. Nondzukiso Booi by 021 854 9100 bel.

Stop at a stop sign JAMEY THOMAS If you are one of the countless motorists who blatantly fail to adhere to a stop sign, you’re in for a surprise. Initiated by member of the Strand Ratepayers Association, Waldi Lubbe, and in collaboration with Helderberg traffic departments and the Strand Neighbourhood Watch, the Stop-at-Stop campaign will be launched at an undisclosed location in the Strand area on Saturday 9 March. With the campaign centring around reprimanding motorists who jump stop streets, motorists will have to be on their best behaviour between 10:00 Waldi Lubbe giving motorist Daantjie Malan an “I Stop-at-Stop” sticker. and 12:00 on this particular day.

Victim lives in fear after robber gets bail ILLANA FRANTZ A woman from Sir Lowry’s Pass is living in fear after the man who robbed her last week, was released on bail. The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, was on her way to work on Wednesday 27 February at around 08:00 when the incident occurred. “I stopped my car at the gate and got out to open it. As I turned around to walk back to my car, I saw a man reaching into my car and grabbing my handbag between the two front seats.” She shouted at the man and asked him what he wanted. He didn’t answer, but when she got closer, she saw a panga in his left hand. “He attempted to hit me with the panga and
screamed in my face. I retreated and lifted my left arm to cover my face. That’s when he made his escape into the bushes,” she recalls. The woman went to the police station in Sir Lowry’s Pass, hoping that her quick action would result in an arrest. “They were more concerned about my injuries and getting my statement, than actually going out to get the guy. They also told me they share a radio line with the station in Khayelitsha and would have to wait their turn to summon a patrol vehicle.” The woman was informed that the docket would be transferred to the Somerset West police station for further investigation. Two days later when she didn’t hear anything from the police, she and her boyfriend decided to investigate the incident. “I remember seeing the guy who robbed me
walking in Sir Lowry’s Pass Road about a week before the incident. He and some other guys cut wood in the forest, so we asked those guys who were with him where he was.” The couple’s investigation led them to the robber’s shack, also in Sir Lowry’s Pass, which according to neighbours, had been padlocked for two days. When the robber returned, one of the men called the woman’s boyfriend who then apprehended him. “My boyfriend loaded him onto his bakkie and drove to my work where I positively identified him. He was sitting in the bakkie, but couldn’t see me as I looked through the window. He still wore the same clothes. My boyfriend then handed him over to the Somerset West police.” When the woman asked the investigating officer on Monday what had happened to the
man, she was told that he had appeared in court, but had been released on bail of R300. “I was very angry. My whole life was in that bag – my bank cards, my ID and a charm bracelet. My asthma inhaler is worth more than the bail he paid. There was also a set of keys in my bag, which he could use to gain entrance to my house,” said the woman. Constable Suzan Jantjies, spokesperson for Somerset West SAPS, confirmed that a robbery with a weapon other than a firearm was reported. The police and the state opposed bail, but were unsuccessful. “When arrests are made by civilians, they should be wary of infringing on the alleged robber’s constitutional rights. Rather phone the police immediately,” she said. The suspect will make his next court appearance on Tuesday 9 April.

The City plans to begin building the emergency houses this month, after protests over a lack of housing in the area occurred last May. The 50 families currently living on the site were identified as those worst affected by flooding and were moved from various areas around Sir Lowry’s Pass by the City in July last year. The houses’ size will be 26 m² each, in compliance with the prescriptions of the National Housing Code. However, community members say these homes will be too small to accommodate their families, and they will not be able to extend the houses. Councillor Tandeka Gqada, Mayco Member for Human Settlements in the City of Cape Town said that structures will be open-plan to allow the residents to partition them off according to their individual needs, but residents will not be able to extend the houses. The houses will remain the assets of the City, says Gqada.

maak has always been intended to alleviate the problem of flooding, not to provide a long-term solution. He said the unhappiness over the housing arose because residents were not aware that they would qualify for a subsidy to allow them to build homes under a people’s housing process, which gives the community control over the housing project, at a later stage. The emergency housing has previously been used at an incremental development site in Mfuleni.
Some Riemvasmaak residents of Sir Lowry’s Pass have complained about the sizes of the emergency houses the City of Cape Town will begin building this month.

The City of Cape Town will soon be building 177 emergency houses in Riemvasmaak in Sir Lowry’s Pass, but some residents are concerned that the homes will be too small for their families.
According to community leader Lionel Benjamin, the houses will be erected on the site and the families allowed to move in to remove the problems caused by heavy flooding in the lower lying areas of Sir Lowry’s Pass. Only then will the property be subdivided and the community members given ownership of it. Benjamin confirmed that although the initial request was for brick houses such as in low-cost housing projects, the housing in Riemvas-

Luukse skouhuise nuutste Dag vol rugby en pret speelveld vir snuffeldiewe JAMEY THOMAS Helderberg-inwoners wie se luukse wonings as skouhuise vertoon word, word gemaan om op die uitkyk te wees vir ’n paartjie wat hulself na bewering as moontlike kopers voordoen en mense van hul waardevolle besittings besteel. Dít volg nadat DistriksPos verlede maand berig het oor ’n Strandegpaar wie se waardevolle besittings ter waarde van R30 000 uit hul huurhuis verdwyn het. Die egpaar het vermoed dat die verdagte paartjie, wat met ’n wit Opel Corsa-bakkie met ’n kap en ’n CEY-registrasienommer ry, die besittings geneem het. Hulle het selfs vals besonderhede aan die eiendomsagent verskaf. In die mees onlangse voorval het ongeveer R15 000 se juweliersware uit die huis van ’n Somerset-Wesinwoner, wat graag anoniem wil bly, verdwyn. Sy het ook ’n vermoede dat ’n paartjie, wat die beskrywing van die verdagtes pas, haar juweliersware geneem het. Volgens die vrou was haar woning tussen 14:30 en 17:00 op Sondag 3 Maart ’n skouhuis. Sy het voorsorg, soos aanbeveel deur die eiendomsagentskap, getref en al hul waardevolle besittings weggebêre, hul kamerkaste gesluit en die
sleutels in ’n laaikas tussen ’n T-hemp weggesteek. Gedurende die skoutyd het sy in die tuin gesit terwyl moontlike kopers na die huis kom kyk het. Sy het ook omstreeks 15:45 by haar buurvrou gaan koffie drink. Terwyl sy omgeloop het na die buurvrou se huis, het sy die paartjie gewaar, wat vir haar verdag voorgekom het. Net ná vyf en toe almal al weg is, het sy na haar huis teruggekeer. “Ek dra nie juweliersware wanneer ek by die huis is nie, en soos altyd het ek heel eerste my juweliersware afgehaal. Maar, toe ek by my kamerkas kom om dit weg te sit, was die sleutel van my kas nie waar ek dit gesit het nie,” sê sy. Die sleutel was egter in haar man se laai tussen een van sy T-hemde. Hoewel dit vir haar baie vreemd was, het sy nogtans die sleutel geneem en die kas oopgesluit. Maar, toe sy die kas oopmaak, was haar twee houtkissies waarin sy haar juweliersware bêre weg, asook haar Gucci-parfuum. “Ek het dadelik die eiendomsagent in kennis gestel en die polisie ontbied,” het die vrou gesê. Van haar besittings wat verdwyn het, was duur kostuumjuweliersware van Miglio, drie stelle pêrels, armbande, ringe en halssnoere. Die vrou beklemtoon dat sy niemand verwyt oor wat gebeur het
nie, veral nie die eiendomsagent nie. “Die hele storie is ’n jammerte. Hoe mense jou goed so kan deursnuffel, gaan my verstand te bowe, maar sulke goed gebeur,” het die vrou gesê. Sy beveel ook aan dat die eiendomsagentskappe dit oorweeg om dalk twee agente by ’n skouhuis te plaas sodat daar meer mense is om toesig te hou oor die mense wat die skouhuis binnegaan. Schalk van der Merwe, Rawsoneiendomsagent wat tydens die skouhuis-voorval teenwoordig was en weer teruggekeer het toe hy in kennis gestel is van wat gebeur het, deel die vrou se vermoede. “Die paartjie, wat baie informeel aangetrek was, het allerlei nuttelose vrae aan my gestel toe hulle by die huis opgedaag het. Ek het ’n snaakse gevoel gekry dat hulle my wou besig hou. Voor ek nog my oog op die twee kon hou, het die volgende groep moontlike kopers die huis binnegekom,” sê Van der Merwe. Volgens hom was die paartjie die enigstes wat ’n handsak saam met hulle in die huis gebring het. Die Somerset-Wes-polisie het bevestig dat ’n saak van diefstal ondersoek word. Enigiemand met inligting kan speur-adjudant-offisier James Robertson by 021 850 1344 of 021 850 1325 bel.

Reward for pendant NIKITA SYLVESTER Somerset West resident Jenny Hurling is going to all lengths to recover her one-ofa-kind missing pendant. Hurling says that because the pendant carries so much meaning and sentimental value, she is offering a R1 000 reward to the person who returns it, no questions asked. Hurling retells the unfortunate series of event which took place on her birthday, 13 February. Her daughter Taryn Erasmus decided to spoil her mother with beauty treatments at a spa in Somerset West. Being a regular client at the spa Hurling said she had recognised a few new employees whom she had never met before. “As I entered the room for my treatment I realised I was still wearing my beads and chain with the pendant around my neck.” Hurling adding that as she battled to get the clasp undone the pendant was still clearly vis-

ible on her chain. Hurling remembers placing both her beads and chain on the cupboard beside her. After her treatment, she proceeded in putting her jewellery on when her chain fell from the cupboard. As she picked it up she noticed the pendant was no longer on it. Thinking it must have fallen somewhere, Hurling began searching the room. She called in her daughter, who was waiting for her outside, as well as some of the employees to help her look but to no avail. Hurling said she was definitely wearing the pendant when she entered the room because the woman who did her treatments was able to describe the pendant when Hurling enquired about its whereabouts. Determined to continue the search, Hurling got in contact with the owner of the spa who confirmed that although the pendant did not turn up, all the employees had undergone a polygraph test and were cleared. Despite making a case with the police, Hurling states that if her pendant is returned to her care she will withdraw the case, not press any further charges and reward the person with R1 000. “All I want is to get my pendant back. It is irreplaceable, there is not another one like that in the world, it was made especially for a loved one and passed on to me. No amount of money can replace it, means a lot to me. “Even if I don’t find it, I want to make sure that I did everything I could to get it back,” said Hurling. Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the pendant is asked to contact Jenny on 082 331 0338.

H’berg business man remembered Francois Pretorius, a well-known local businessman, passed away on Thursday 28 February 2013. Paul du Toit of Morkel and De Villiers Attorneys tells the story of how Francois came to Somerset West as a young man with his young bride Debbie in 1982 where they swiftly established themselves in this community. They were the owners of Dilly’s Supermarket in Heldervue for a period of six years and became well known and much loved. Francois then decided that it was time for a change and ventured into the property business. He soon headed Remax, Somerset West, Strand and Gordon’s Bay and was widely regarded as an expert in the property field. Francois was an outdoor person and never happier than when he was camping in the bush. He had a particular fondness for the big cats and as a keen photographer had many beautiful photographs as trophies of lions and other wild animals in the veld. He always remained humble and was a good friend to so many people often assisting quietly and in the background where and when he was needed. He was a loving husband to Debbie and father to Philip and Niki, and he loved taking his family with him to his beloved bushveld, camping, braaiing and enjoying nature. The funeral service will be held on Friday 8 March at 10:00 at the Hottentots-Holland Dutch Reformed Church.
Charles Denniston: “Francois had a zest for life. He loved outdoor adventure and thrived on a chal lenge, whether it was arm wrestling or the highest dune. He had a keen sense of humour and loved nothing more than to reminiscence about all the an tics we got up to. “Francois was loved by all, but a private person and if you broke through all the bravado, you found a genuine, caring, funloving friend who would al ways be there for you. “‘To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die’.”
Melinda Steyn: “Ek het Francois leer ken in 2004 en in die amper nege jaar wat ons as familie hom geken het, het ons baie goeie tye saam beleef. Daar was die onbegaanbare roetes op toer in Bot swana in die moordende son, die aande om die kampvuur, wilde diere dophou vir ure. Die natuur was Francois se passie en dit is hoe ek vir Francois sal onthou. Francois het sy vriende onvoorwaardelik aanvaar en al was hy hoe besig, sou hy altyd tyd maak vir jou. Francois het nie weggeskram om betrokke te raak in moeilike situasies nie, maar het ook nie gehuiwer om sterk standpunt in te neem wanneer die situasie dit vereis het nie. Hy was ’n man wat emosie kon wys. Hy was iemand wat alles wat hy aangepak het, met deeglikheid en presisie be plan het. Hy was ’n realis. ’n Onvervangbare vriend wat ons te vroeg verlaat het.” Michel Fisher: “Ou swaar, man van min woor de, familieman by uitstek, kos en die buitelewe jou tweede liefdes. Jy het jou wedloop voltooi, mag jy tot rus kom op Kgalagadi. Ou Knormoer, we gonna miss you around the fire and table.” (Knor moer was sy bynaam van skooldae). Jaco and Cecile Holtzhausen: “ ’n Vriend deur dik en dun, in goeie tye en slegte tye, maar altyd daar vir jou. Jou heengaan was ’n skok vir ons wat moet agterbly, maar ons glo dat waar jy is, jy rus en vrede sal vind. Nooit sal ons vergeet ons geselsies om die kamp
en braaivleisvure nie. Soms het ons net na die vuur gestaar, maar so was ons elkeen tog bewus van mekaar. Die buitelewe was deel van Francois, kosmaak, of dit nou ontbyt, potjie of braai was, geurig en altyd met die nodige sorg en liefde. Jy laat ’n leemte in ons harte, ons mis en verlang elke dag. Weet dat Debbie, Philip en Niki altyd deel van ons sal wees en dat ons Hemelse Vader hulle sal omring met sy liefde en genade. Totsiens ou maat.”

Sê jou sê
Ek wil graag die Engen Garage in Macassar bedank vir die uit stekende diens van al hul perso neellede. Ek het lanklaas sulke opgewekte, hulpvaardige mense gesien wat so opgewek hul werk take verrig. Ek het ’n ruk gelede ook hul diens geprys, en hulle be hou nog steeds dieselfde hoë standaard van dienslewering. Julle maak my dag altyd so won derlik, elke keer wanneer ek pe trol in my motor laat gooi. Elize Liebenberg
SWest law enforcers march against crime Violent crimes against young women once again reared it’s ugly head in the Helderberg this week. In two separate incidents (one in Gordon’s Bay and one in Sir Lowry’s Pass) two women were attacked, robbed and threatened. In both instances law-abiding citizens came to the aid of the women to try and stop the crime and arrest the criminals, but unfortunately the good samaritans came off second best and the perpetrators got away once more. Helderbergers are sick and tired of crime, criminals and the slow moving wheels of justice and are standing up to try and do something about it. A spokesperson for the SAPS this week however warned that when arrests are made by civilians, they should be careful of infringing on the alleged robber’s constitutional rights and rather phone the SAPS to deal with the crime. It appears that officials heard the public cries to stop crime and criminals and decided to do something about it. On Wednesday a group of law enforcement officers marched through Somerset West in an effort to curb crime in the area. Let’s hope this is a regular occurrence and is followed in all areas in and around the Helderberg.
Dankie aan Kansa se Relay for Life As kanker-oorlewende wil ek net ’n groot dankie sê vir die wonderlike geleentheid Saterdagaand 2 Maart by die Hoërskool Hottentots-Holland. Dankie is nie genoeg nie. Dit was met een woord puik en alle reëlings en vermaaklikheid was uitstaande. Daar was baie, baie hard gewerk van een en almal se kant – die eerste keer vir Helderberg, en beslis nie die laaste nie. Baie dankie aan die span wat alles so perfek gereël het: Carlione, Sonja, Heloise, Iana, Liza, Petro, Carlo, Eben en Lorraine. Ook aan hul mans wat net so hard gewerk het, ’n groot dankie. Baie dankie ook aan die selgroep van die NG gemeente Lourensrivier vir die heerlike eetgoed. My dank aan almal wat die geleentheid geborg het, asook hulle wat dwarsdeur die nag geloop het en sommer aan al jul lieflike mense God bless you. Julle almal het ons survivors so spesiaal laat voel. Ek sê ’n groot dankie aan Johan en Petro Pente. Hulle was my stapmaats by die Kansa Relay for Life. Toe ek ’n uiters moeilike tyd deurgemaak het, was hulle my steunpilare. Saam het ons die pad gestap. Vandag nog is hulle steeds daar met hul liefde, hulp en bystand. Ek sê, Thank you Jesus vir twee wonderlike vriende in my lewe. God se rykste seën vir hulle. Met dankbaarheid.
Baie dankie aan die eerlike per soon wat my selfoon opgetel en vir die sekuriteit by Friedman & Cohen gegee het. Ek waardeer dit opreg. Mev. Dürr

I-Pledge vehicle safety campaign does not work in practice On 30 January 2013 my car was hit by a cargo truck on the N2. The truck swerved into the fast lane without looking and hit the left rear fender of my vehicle. The driver then (after many signals from me) refused to stop (illegal according to laws of South Africa) and I had to follow him all the way to Maitland at his stop. This was approximately 15 km from scene of accident. After I enquired as to what the driver thought he was doing he started using foul language, as witnessed by another employee. More than a month later, after
all my submissions, the company informed me that they deny liability as the driver’s version of the incident was not the same as my own. After informing the MD of the company that it was impossible to get witnesses since the driver kept driving away from the scene. The MD did eventually apologise for the inconvenience caused and promised to look into the matter. I recently received another email from that company denying liability of the accident. This shows that the same compa-
Verkeer neem toe, paaie onveranderd Ek bedank “Gatvol” (SMS) vir die inisiatief om die owerheid aan te val oor pad tussen Casablanca en Gordonsbaai. Dis so ’n besige en belangrike skakel-pad en word deur inwoners asook vragmotors en skool-vervoer gebruik. Menige dae weet jy nie waar om in die gruispad te ry nie. Ek woon nou 16 jaar in die
Strand en inwoners het seker al drie of vier keer verdubbel, maar bitter min word aan paaie gedoen vir oorvloed verkeer. Broadlands en Hoofweg is die ergste met soveel oortollige grond om paaie te verbreed, maar niks word gedoen nie.
Skuif van Sassa-betaalpunte ’n kopseer Die verskuiwing van Sassa se betaalpunte na die Shoprite-winkelsentrum in Macassar het ’n wesenlike impak op die mense, en op ons as klein besighede. Die mense moet in ellelange rye staan en word teen ’n slakkepas gehelp, aangesien net twee betaalpunte binne die winkel aan hul toegeken word.
Die negatiewe impak op ons is dat hul voor ons besighede staan, teen ons vensters leun en ons klientediens belemmer. Die bestuur van Shoprite ag dit natuurlik nie as ’n probleem nie omdat hul die aankope van die mense bekom.
GEROME VERMEULEN MCD TAKE AWAYS
Dankie PW Botha & Seuns Net ’n paar woorde van dank en waardering, en om ander lesers van DistriksPos in te lig dat ek reeds vir 25 jaar lank baie goeie diens van PW Botha & Seuns in Kusweg, Strand, geniet. Gedurende hierdie 25 jaar het verskeie van my motors daar die nodige aandag en onderhoud ontvang en die diens was altyd uitstaande. Mnr. Botha of sy seuns, of
die vriendelike ontvangsdame was nooit te besig om my dom vrae te beantwoord nie of om ’n tegniese aspek te verduidelik nie. Oor die afgelope 25 jaar het ek nooit gehuiwer om my motors in hul sorg te laat nie. Baie dankie, PW Botha & Seuns. Voorspoed vorentoe.

ny behind the I-Pledge vehicle safety campaign condones their drivers driving away from the scene of an accident and using abusive language to other road users. This is in a country where road accidents are a major problem and one would expect drivers of 18 wheeler trucks to be more cautious on the road. The company has contradicted itself tremendously in this situation and still did not even have the decency to apologise for the driver’s behaviour in the least.
Sincere thanks I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to Johan V Coetzee Insurance Brokers for going above and beyond the call of duty. I want to thank you for your professional service. I have been your client for the past 35 years and your treatment of us during a very difficult time in our lives has been amazing. To Lynette Knott, you deserve a medal for your wonderful and professional service. Keep up the good work. We are very happy and satisfied clients!
PETER AND PAM STUURMAN
Thanks for the improvements In these times of shocking service delivery we have been so impressed by the response received to two problems near our office in the Strand, namely the clearing of the nearby ‘tik-house’ and it’s unsavoury inhabitants (and keeping it clear) and the recent improvement in the condition of the Galloway Plein. To all those involved (Dave Venter, DA Helderberg, in particular) we’d like to thank you. Your efforts are hugely appreciated.
Ek wil net baie dankie sê aan die matrone en verpleegsusters van Mediclinic Vergelegen, Somer setWes. Julle was amazing Vry dag. Zalda Hendricks van Eerste rivier, jy is great. Baie, baie dan kie. Ek wou jou bedank het, maar ek het ongelukkig te veel pyn ver duur. Nogmaals baie dankie vir alles. Mev. October Ons kantoor het oornag besoek ontvang van die (anonieme) grasperkfeetjie. Die gras is net jies gesny, die rande ook, en die vullis is in ’n swart sak. Baie dan kie, jy is ’n ster. Esther Naude, PATCH Ek wil ook weet, wanneer gaan die munisipaliteit begroot om ’n ordentlike pawiljoen met ’n dak en sitplekke vir die gemeenskap van Rusthof te bou? Rugby is ’n wintersport en die hokkie van Abattoirsportterrein is omtrent 53 jaar oud. Die toeskouers moet elke jaar in die warm son staan. In die winter reën ons sopnat, want daar is geen merkwaardige sportgeriewe nie. Lwandle het ’n ruk gelede ’n sintetiese sokker veld gekry. Is ons nie deel van die stad Kaapstad nie? Sportliefhebber van Rusthof Ondersteun vir Hettie by Salon Shalom in die Strand. Sy het my hare pragtig gekleur en gesny teen ’n pensioentrekkerprys. Sy is deeglik en baie trots op haar werk. Dankie. Ek waardeer dit baie. Marita I also saw the very large flying orange ball on the same night as MAX (DistrictMail 28 February) and thought it to be a UF0. I would also like to know what it was. Gloria I was saddened by the death of Christene Gordon, a great pio neer fighting against drugs and alcohol abuse in the Helderberg. You have run your race, may your soul rest in peace.

Rules for watering gardens In order to prevent further water wastage, residents are once again being encouraged to stick to the specified garden watering times. Especially important during summer seasons when dam levels traditionally tend to drop, the City of Cape Town’s water and sanitation department has confirmed that although there is no cause for concern, the City appeals to residents to remain water wise. The following rules apply when watering: • Only water gardens before 10:00 or after 16:00. • All hose pipes used for washing vehicles must have an auto-
matic self-closing nozzle fitted. • Residents who use borehole or wellpoint water must register or re-register their boreholes and wellpoints with the City. A new sign and certificate of appreciation will be provided to those who register new and re-register existing boreholes and wellpoints, which must be displayed prominently. Although they are exempt from the watering time stipulations, these water users are encouraged to only water their gardens during the stipulated watering times according to the City’s by-laws. Further details can be found on the City’s website.

AFS needs hosts AFS Interculture SA, a nonprofit organisation which promotes intercultural learning and awareness through exchange programmes, invites families in the Helderberg to host young foreign exchange participants. According to a volunteer and representative of the organisation, Isaac Lategan, hosting an exchange participant is like inviting the world into your own home. “It is a fantastic opportunity to expose your family to a different culture whilst building a longlasting relationship with an interesting young person from another country. “We are inviting applications from safe, open-minded and caring families who will voluntarily provide the exchange participants with love, food, a separate bed and opportunities for culture sharing with each other and our diverse communities.” Lategan added that the local youth also has the opportunity to travel, attend school and experience life with a foreign family abroad through the AFS Interculture sending programmes. With this programme, exchange participants gain more appreciation of different cultures and many become active global citizens against poverty, racism and
gender discrimination. “AFS Interculture SA has given young people from around the world the opportunity to stay with a South African family and experience our culture of ubuntu since 1958.” If you would like more information on hosting a foreign exchange participant, phone Lategan on 083 988 5706. You can also send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, visit their website www.afs.org.za or find them on Facebook.

Elke voëlliefhebber kan by kursus baat Die Flight for Birders voël-identifikasie en bewaringskursus deur Dr. Anton Odendal word op 21 en 22 Maart in die Helderberg Natuurreservaat aangebied. ’n Kort handleiding en sertifikaat wat deur BirdLife Suid Afrika onderskryf word, sal aan deelnemers gegee word – ongeveer 1 600 skyfies en illustrasies word gebruik. Die Afrikaanse en Engelse name van spesies word op die meeste skyfies aangebring. In baie gevalle word foto’s van soortgelyke of verwarrende spesies saam op een skyfie geplaas om verskille prakties uit te wys. Swaar klem word geplaas op die basiese stappe wat gevolg moet word om voëls te identifiseer en die beste plekke om raar en soms endemiese spesies te kry word bespreek. Deelnemers word deurlopend aangemoedig om betrokke te raak in die bewaring van voëls en hul habitatte. Tuinvoëls, watervoëls, roofvoëls en moeilike groepe soos Little Brown Jobs en swaels word sistematies en op praktiese wyse illustreer. Praktiese maniere om voëls en ander natuurlewe na die tuin te lok word ook breedvoerig bespreek. Die kursus fokus baie sterk op bewaringskwessies wat voëls bedreig en praktiese wenke word gegee oor hoe gewone voëlkykers in bewaringsaksies betrokke kan raak. Gevallestudies oor die impak van pelikane op broeikolonies van duikers aan die Weskus, die werk oor pikkewyne deur die Dyereiland Bewaringstrust en die werk van die Albatros Taakgroep word onder meer gebruik. Die kursus bespreek ook hoe ’n mens voorberei om die meeste uit voëlkyk te haal wanneer onbekende plekke besoek word en hier word ’n gevallestudie oor die voëls van die Kruger Nasionale Park gebruik. Die ontwikkeling van voëlkyktoerisme in Suid Afrika word ook beklemtoon. ’n Praktiese uitstappie waartydens deelnemers gewys word hoe om voëls te kyk maak ook deel van die kursus uit. Die kursus kan dus deur beginners so wel as meer ervare voëlkykers bygewoon word, omdat gepoog word om deelnemers te motiveer om voëls te geniet en ook ’n bydrae tot die bewaring van voëls en hul habitatte te maak. Die kursus word by die Mike Woods-saal in die Helderberg Natuurreservaat, Somerset-Wes aangebied. Die kostes beloop R400 per persoon. Die kursusprogram, registrasievorm en ander inligting kan van Elaine by 082 455 8402 of email@example.com ontvang word.

Ratepayers ripped off Municipalities crippled by theft
Kerk vier 40 jaar Die Calvyn Protestantse Kerk in Macassar vier Donderdag 4 April sy 40ste bestaansjaar. Die geleentheid word Saterdag 6 April met ’n driegangmaaltyd in die Somchem-saal gevier. Kaartjies word teen R120 verkoop. Om die vieringe op ’n goeie noot af te sluit word ’n Nagmaal-dankseggingsdiens Sondagoggend 7 April om 10:00 gehou. Bel ds. Thomas Beukes by 084 222 1302 vir meer inligting.
ort Elizabeth – Municipalities around the country are being brought to their knees by ruthless syndicates who are responsible for cities and towns losing millions every month. The theft is relentless. In one of the more recent exa mples, t he Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality said it was l o s i n g 2 4 m i l l io n e a c h m o n t h . eThekwini ratepayers are reported to be losing R120 million a year. T he Cit ies of Cape Tow n a nd Johannesburg lose about R121 million and R663 million respectively. The crime has
of Eskom or local government, intimidating a nd v ict i m isi ng ord i na r y cit i ze n s, preventing them from taking action. Recently a large quantity of electricity boxes, connectors and a receipt book were found during the arrest of suspects in Port Elizabeth. The receipt book included addresses of buildings in Cape Town, George, Knysna and Port Elizabeth where electricity boxes were installed. Investigations are ongoing and information found in the receipt book could lead to further arrests. The perpetrators could face serious criminal charges.
also been reported as one of the factors that brought uMsunduzi Municipality to its knees. Many other smaller municipalities are likewise being devastated. The crime behind these losses is electricity theft and happens in various forms. Syndicates employ individuals who are desperate for work to sell illegal prepaid electricity vouchers, to connect households illegally, tamper with their meters, or to steal electricity cables. The culprits do all of this at a fee, luring innocent people into crime. These syndicates often pretend to be employees
Local government has joined forces with the power utility Eskom, the business sector and the media to stem the ﬂow of losses caused by electricity theft. The South African Local Government Association (SALGA) is a core partner of Operation Khanyisa, a campaign that aims to mobilise all South Africans for legal, safe and efﬁcient electricity use. SALGA has recently committed to redoubling its efforts to combat the crime of electricity theft, which it says is responsible for municipalities losing up to R3.2 billion each year.
According to SALGA’s Executive Director for Municipal Infrastructure Services, Mthobeli Kolisa, SALGA needs to coordinate and support municipalities to act and report their action in respect of electricity theft, and to review their bylaws to have more stringent penalties against electricity theft. At the launch of Operation Khanyisa, Xolile George, CEO of SALGA, described electricity theft as “a pandemic coursing through our delivery capabilities and ﬁscal planning.” “Local government,” he said “plays a pivotal role in the distribution of electricity, and electricity theft hits at the very heart of the electricity distribution industry in South Africa.” “Enough is enough,” George continued. “We have joined forces with our partners in Operation Khanyisa and will stamp out this crime.” Together with Crime Line, Operation Khanyisa provides a platform for South Africans to report electricity theft anonymously, by sending a detailed SMS to 32211 (R1/SMS).

12 Distrikspos Helderberg community shows drive at Cansa Relay
7 Maart, 2013
This past weekend saw the launch and successful finish of the first CANSA Relay For Life Helderberg, held on Hottentots-Holland High School’s rugby field. At 18:00 on Saturday, 60 cancer survivors, the oldest being 90 years old and the youngest six years old, led the teams for the start of an all-night relay around the field. Teams of between 10 and 15 people could enter at R75 per person. The funds will be donated to CANSA. “The Helderberg community showed drive, dedication, determination and a commitment that is unequalled and unmatched. Spirits remained high all night, with people supporting and motivating each other as the goal for can-
cer awareness remained in each and everyone’s hearts and minds,” said Colin Prinsloo, one of the organisers. He thanked the following teams: Lochnerhof Primary School (Lochie Diva’s), Strand High (Eagles), BUCO (who also sponsored the Survivor T-shirts), Hotshots, Herbalife, Clark Pools (The hair salon combo team who won the team prize for most funds raised), Care Bears and Purple Turtles just to name a few. Special mention must be made to individuals such as Johannes, who completed a total of 131 laps, and Dennis from Team Purple Turtles who completed 111 laps, totalling almost ninety seven km between the two of them. “They not only inspired everyone else, but showed team work and dedication that is unri-
valed. Special thanks goes out to HottentotsHolland High School for sponsoring the venue and all the facilities free of charge, and to the Strand Lions Club and other unsung heroes who ensured bellies were filled and energy levels remained high all night.” The organisers want to thank each and every one who took part for making this an event that will remain a beacon in the hearts of hundreds, and contributing to the success of the event. They plan to host the same event next year. To become part of this, phone Carol on 073 204 5979, email firstname.lastname@example.org or find them on Facebook.

Blommeklub leer by mekaar Die Helderberg Blommeklub het hul opening vir 2013 op Dinsdag 26 Februarie gehou. Die klub is opsoek na nuwe lede en almal is welkom om aan te sluit. Hoe dit werk is, elke maand kry die klub ’n ander demonstrateur wat die lede kom toespreek. “Jy neem dit wat vir jou belangrik is en maak dit jou eie deur ’n blomontwerp by die huis te gaan oefen. Volgende maand bring jy dan daai ontwerp na die klub waar dit beoordeel word,” verduidelik klubvoorsitter Jannie du Toit.
Hy voeg by dat foute herstel kan word en dat die ander klublede so dan ook uit mekaar se foute kan leer. Volgens Du Toit het baie van die lede nog nooit blomme gerangskik nie en gevolglik gee hy en Engela Kruger, twee van die klub se senior lede baie aandag aan beginners. Nuwe lede is welkom om aan te sluit teen R60 per persoon. Die volgende vergadering vind plaas op Dinsdag 26 Maart in die SomersetWes-biblioteeksaal om 18:30. Vir meer inligting, bel Du Toit by 072 473 2420.

The great rotation, out of bonds into equities
It has been said that investing is simple, but not easy. Global asset managers are currently talking about the “great rotation” referring to the possible move out of bonds into equities as investors try to protect their wealth against rising inflation. The investment theory is simple. The current yield on a 10 year US treasury is 1,9%, providing a 0,2% real return before tax (US inflation currently at 1,7%). If or rather when – if you believe in Keynesian economic theory – inflation begins to rise bond investors will be forced to move out of bonds or face real losses on their investments. The rather obvious alternative investment for bond investors is global equity. Developed Market Global equity indices have only just recovered to their previous highs in 2000, whilst corporate earnings have grown strongly
over the period resulting in the very favourable current valuation multiples. Keep in mind investors generally shunned risky equities in favour of risk-free bonds over the last 12 years. A current global equity dividend yield of ± 3%, with the potential for growth, is indicative of great value, offering investors a “no-brain” alternative to the dismal returns generated from bonds. If it is so simple, then why is it that the bulk of global investment money still sits in bonds? Investing may be simple, but it is not easy. Fresh in the mind of global equity investors is the massive loss suffered in 2008 when they saw almost half their wealth disappear overnight. Since then central bankers around the world
have unleashed unprecedented stimulus in order to try and promote economic growth and employment, this without much success to-date. So, although inflation concerns seem well founded, the Japanese experience of 20+ years of deflation serves to remind investors that this is not a one way bet. There is risk; however equity investors are being paid to take the risk with the equity risk premium now well above its longterm average. For the bold investor there appears to be a rather obvious trade, which the “herd” are ignoring.

Why is diesel so expensive? NIKITA SYLVESTER Although motorists and commuters gasp each time they hear the words “fuel price increase”, it has become a common occurrence. Petrol and diesel prices have indeed increased again yesterday (6 March) by 81c and 53,38c respectively. With the rapidly increasing price of fuel the Cape Town Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry feel that this constant incline calls for a recalculation of how these prices are determined. Fred Jacobs, president of the chamber, explained that the system was devised years prior in different political and economical circumstances. The formula might even be outdated. “Business is particularly concerned about the price of diesel which is a basic input cost for agriculture and transport. It affects the price of every item of food in the supermarket,” said Jacobs. According to Peter Hugo, chairman of the chamber’s transport portfolio committee, the formula for
calculating fuel prices was a complicated one. “There should be scope for improvements and adjustments to bring it into line with changing circumstances,” he said. He continued in stating that the situation has worsened in the last 15 years with diesel now being the more expensive fuel despite the fact that it was the cheaper one to produce. “This should make us review the way the diesel price is calculated and also the various taxes on diesel. The government thought there was a good case to reduce taxes on diesel in 1998 and we think there is an even better case now,” said Hugo.

HHCC locked in a power battle with Kensington When Hottentots-Holland Cricket Club’s (HHCC) first team continue their game against Kensington on Saturday they will have to up their ante if they want to win and stand a chance of promotion. HHCC batted first after losing the toss and scored 159/4 in 60 overs. The best batsmen were Yaseen Jakoet 49*, Ruben Mathhews 28, Riedwaan Bayat 26 and Rida Rhoda 26*. Kensington went to bat and declared on 137/9 in over 59. The best bowlers for HHCC were Emaad Opperman 10-3-30, Rafeeq Baderoen 10-2-22 and Yaseen Jakoet 10-2-26. HHCC started their second innings with a lead of 22 runs and ended the first day on 17/0, which including the first innings lead, they now have a lead of 39/0. It was an all cat-and-mouse game with a 0.5 point difference between the teams chasing second spot on the log. At the end of play HHCC moved to third place in the league, however it’s the all important win that grants the victor an extra 15 points. The current point status is that Kensing-
ton are ahead of Hottentots-Holland with 0.03 points. HHCC’s Assassins (second team) beat Rondebosch by 100 runs in their away game on Saturday. HHCC batted first and scored 169/7 in 35 overs. The best batsmen were Wayne Cloete 35, Dawood Josephs 20 and Ebrahim Pedro 18. HHCC bowled Rondebosch out for 69 winning the match by 100 runs. The best bowler was Waqar Joseph with 7-4-20. The HHCC Strikers (third team) played log leaders St Augustines away and scraped through to a six-run win. The Strikers played the log leaders and batted first scoring 153/7 in their allotted 35 overs. Ebrahim Sha 52, Noor Baderoen 29 and Aqib Achmat 21 were the best batsmen on the day. This was a hard-fought close encounter by the Strikers and in the end showed character from HHCC who won the match by six runs. The best bowlers for the Strikers were Abubakr Rhoda 4-5-10, Noor Baderoen 7-3-21 and Zacharia Baderoen 4-2-18.
Pirates fight hard to beat experienced Battswood Pirates got back to their winning ways in their match against Battswood, played at Radloff Park on Saturday, with a 7-4 win. In a rather uneventful game Pirates struggled to pick up momentum after opening up a early two run lead. The left handed pitching combination of Brad de Waal and Damian Perkins proved too tricky for an experienced Battswood team and kept the opposition at bay. Midway through the game both teams picked up momentum but a strong defensive performance by Pirates gave them the edge and prevented Battswood from responding to the runs Pirates began to tally. Despite a last minute surge by the team from Chucker Road, Pirates held on to secure a win.
The masters came up against a very strong Kenfac Phillies team on Saturday and lost the match by 23-4. Despite being understaffed (seven players), the club’s u.10 team proved just too good for Silvertree and overpowered them 26-8. The second side and u.14 teams did not play this weekend. The Helderberg Pirates Baseball Club invite all players, family members and friends of the club to join them on Sunday 10 March for their annual ‘Chip and Putt’ golf day. The day was a successful fund raiser last year and the club are hoping that it will once again be a great success. To enter a four ball phone Jared Uys on 071 866 9652.

HHCC celebrates 60th anniversary Established in 1952, the Hottentots-Holland Cricket Club (HHCC) celebrates 60 years of existence, sacrifices, dedication and team spirit. In honour of this milestone, the club’s executive committee and members have decided to celebrate this occasion with the elders of the community and those who contributed to the success of this Strand-based club. “This is quite a big deal for us that the club has survived against all odds, despite coming up against very tough conditions,” said Ziyaad Salie, chairman of Club 60, a group initiated by the club to conduct relevant research for the event. He added that the community is what kept HHCC together all these years. To show their respect and appreciation, the members of the club would like to invite all current members as well as those who have been members in the past 60 years to attend an “evening of thanks” on Saturday 9 March at the Iqrah Learning Centre hall, Strand. The main guest speakers for the evening will be Beresford Williams, president of the Western Province Cricket Association,
former South African cricketer, Omar Henry, and Professor ASM Karaan, dean of the agriscience faculty at Stellenbosch University. Also in attendance will be some of the members of the Cobras cricket team. According to club members, due to their constant battle with vandalism in the area, their cricket facilities have suffered considerably. They were fortunate enough to receive four practise nets which members say are a real asset to them. HHCC currently play their home matches at the Gustrouw sports fields and at the old naval fields in Gordon’s Bay but are in the process of accepting a new turf at Abattoir sports grounds. “We hope this attempt of moving our main games to the Abattoir sports grounds will be a success and ask our community to stand behind us as we try to uphold and protect our honour by regarding the new facilities as ours – the Strand community,” said Salie. For further information regarding the event, contact Ziyaad Salie, 072 170 7613, or Ebrahim Aziz, 076 066 5594.
‘Department should withdraw all treknet fishing licences’ to save our fish On Monday morning I was notified about another massive trek of four tons of fish, mostly kob and elf from Strandfontein beach. This trek was apparently carried out by licensed treknet fisherman. There are so many shore anglers that witness these treks and who are so disappointed that these trek fishermen can keep thousands of elf and kob while individual anglers are only allowed to keep four fish of each of these species and have to return all undersize fish. I believe that these treknet fishermen have wiped out a number of complete shoals of fish that have entered our bay which is why these species are so scarce of late. If the authorities from the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries are real-
ly serious about conservation then it is time to withdraw all treknet fishing licenses. More positive news is that I received several reports of good size kob being caught on live bait at the Strandfontein and Swartklip areas on Saturday during an all-night competition. A number of kob were also caught from the old Gordon’s Bay harbour wall. The winner of the competition was Gideon Kriel who weighed in a 2,5kg kob. This fish earned the lucky anglers R5 000 and a custom-made wet suit. On Sunday there were also a few kob and geelbek caught on Blake’s Beach as well as two legal size white steenbras caught by a father and his son. Anglers fishing from small boats and kayaks in the popular venues around the Strand
area have also caught a few kob and the odd geelbek, the best being a 4 kg kob caught in the Poort on Sunday. It was recently reported that the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries is in complete disarray and an investigation about irregularities within the department is to be carried out soon. During a recent survey by Stellenbosch University it was proved that recreational boat fishing and shore angling is the best money spinner for the government. The Western Province Deep Sea Angling Association held their annual prize giving function at the Cape Boat & Ski Boat Club on Saturday night.

Mikyla Josephs recently competed in the girls u.13 javelin event at the University of the Western Cape where she represented the Metropole East team and obtained her Western Province colours for primary schools. This past Saturday she competed for a Western Cape team against Boland and the South Western District. Despite suffering a hamstring injury she managed to push through resulting in her being selected to represent the Western Cape primary schools team at the South African championships to be held in Sasolburg from 14-16 March. “The downside, however, is that Western Province athletics informed us that they will not be able to contribute anything towards the R3 000 required to send Mikyla to Sasolburg,” her father Edward Josephs said. Anyone who would like to contribute or make a donation towards her expenses may phone Edward Josephs on 084 8387 466.

Junior cricket – Western Province or Boland? We are in a unique situation in the Helderberg when it comes to cricket because we are on the border of Boland and Western Province. For this reason there is a tug of war between the two provinces over junior cricket in particular. Currently all primary schools in the Helderberg play cricket in the WP and all the high schools play in the Boland, while clubs play in the WP. One of the drawbacks of this system is that some of the Helderberg’s top primary school players are not being selected for WP teams, or if they are, they are not given as much game time as players from the Cape Town area. WP’s view is why should they select a Helderberg player for a WP team and invest time and money in them only to see them leave
for another province once they get to high school? I suppose this is a valid point, but unfair on the cricketers. It would be a lot easier if our primary and high schools played for the same province, whether it be WP or Boland. This would a tough decision, but it would be a decision that could benefit the Helderberg region in many years to come. It could also be another way of keeping some of our top players in the Helderberg, rather than losing them once they get to high school. In years gone by, players who were selected to play for WP, went to high schools in the Cape Town area to stay in WP, meaning that the Helderberg lost many of these talented players. Each province has its own positives and
negatives and its own set of politics as well. But sticking with one province for primary and high school could well be the answer. We have very talented school cricketers in the Helderberg region – one has only look at the number of players that represent WP at primary school level and Boland at high school level in this area to prove this. The Helderberg region is also seen as one of the stronger regions in WP primary school cricket. This is a hot topic and something that should be given some thought.
Fans want 2013 SWCC struggle against Yorkshire season to start With mixed results for our local clubs in preseason matches, it’s pleasing to hear many coaches say that they are looking at the bigger picture and not just the scoreboard. St Georges were beaten by Wesbank in Malmesbury, Raithby beat Strand Pioneers, Strand beat All Saints, Sir Lowrians thumped Eerste River and Helderberg got their season off to a win over Ceres. With these matches taking place, numbers at the various training grounds have picked up and registration of players is in full swing. The Western Provinces Rugby Football Union’s executive committee member Reuben Riffel, who is in charge of the Stellenbosch/Helderberg region, will hold his first meeting at the Charles Morkel Stadium on 12 March with club chairmen from the various clubs. I think it’s a great initiative by the Union. Thelo Wakefield is slowly putting structures in place that he “pitched’’ to the clubs before the elections. Wakefield and Danny Jones (General Manager of Amateur Rugby in the WP) will meet with Strand Pioneers management this Friday night. Games to look forward to this weekend include: Strand travelling to Hawston, Strand United away in Paarl and Helderberg face up to a Sports Foundation Squad in a funfilled day. With the fixtures for the 2013 season now finalised excitement is running high for the league matches to start. A Bok Smart Course will be held at Gustrouw this Friday night.

Helderberg wen taai wedstryd Helderberg rugbyklub se eerstespan het Saterdag op Kraaifontein ’n naelskraapse 6-5 sege oor Ceres behaal. Die twee spanne het albei inklimspel gelewer en die wedstryd was deurgaans uiters gelykop. Helderberg het eerste punte aangeteken danksy ’n strafdoel van heelagter Morne Cooper (3-0). Ceres het egter kort voor die omdraaislag ’n voorspelerdrie gedruk en rustyd was die telling 5-3 in die tuisspan se guns. Die twee spanne het mekaar in die tweede helfte verder vasgevat, met harde laagvatte en die loure gedeel in die vaste fasette. Die enigste verdere punte het gekom van nog ’n suksesvolle strafdoel van Morne Cooper. Saterdag om 15:00 speel ’n Helderberg ‘squad’ teen ’n ‘Foundation squad’ (bestaande uit sewe omliggende klubs) tydens die klub se gemeenskap fees.
SWCC made a reasonable start with the bat, getting to tee at 34-0 in 21 overs. Then, with the need to up the scoring rate, there was a dramatic collapse and SWCC was all out for 71 runs. Francois Kilian obtained the top score with 42 runs. SWCC had to bowl another 12 overs to see out the day’s play, but did not take any wickets. Yorkshire has an overall lead of 115 runs when play resumes on Saturday.
The members of Somerset West Cricket Club’s (SWCC) first team have their backs up against the wall in their match against Yorkshire and will need to pull out all the stops. Last week Yorkshire batted first and scored 163 after being 113/1 at lunch. SWCC made a good comeback thanks to Francois Kilian who took six wickets for 34 runs, in just over 11 overs. Rudi Bischoff and James Wilshere also put in good supporting efforts.

CRICKET: WESTERN PROVINCE 1C LEAGUE
Tough task awaits Helderberg Helderberg Cricket Club will fight with everything they’ve got to win their match against Milnerton, which continues at the Helderzicht sports complex on Saturday. Helderberg, who are the current Western Province Cricket Association’s 1 C log leaders, need maximum batting points from this gameto maintain their lead on the log. Close behind them are Tygerberg (115.25) and Edgmead (115.12). Helderberg lost the toss and were asked to bat first. The visitors cashed in early to soon have Helderberg reeling on 15/4. They continued to fight, but were all out for 93 runs. Player/coach Mario Solomons rallied his troops before they went out to field and urged them to dig deep to try and reverse what happened and salvage a win from the match. His appeal fell on the ears of the evergreen fast bowler Adrian van Reenen who ripped through Milnerton’s top order to bag six wickets for 25 runs in 12 overs. Van Reenen was well supported by youngster Wilton Hindley who also took two wickets and Milnerton were all out for 82. In their second innings Helderberg were 86/4 at stumps and will have to put in a sterling effort to win this penultimate game and hope the other two top teams don’t stretch the gap to far. The Strand Autospares Player of the day went to Adrian van Reenen.
Helderberg Cricket club’s first team smile and give each other high fives as another wicket falls in the match against Milnerton played at the Helderzicht grounds last weekend. The match resumes this Saturday. PHOTO: PETER BEE
