Members of the Lomond Court Neighbourhood Watch want to bring change to the community and better the lives of the children in the area.

Making a difference AVRIL FILLIES

T

o take Lomond Court in Hanover Park back and to make a difference in the lives of the children in the area are the two main reasons why the Lomond Court Neighbourhood Watch (NHW) hosted a Fun Day for approximately 300 children on Tuesday 31 December. This past year, Hanover Park was constantly in the newspapers because of gangsterism, gang violence and how unsafe it is for children to play in its parks or streets. The Lomond Court NHW, which falls under Ryston Road NHW, decided to bring cheer to the children and residents in Lomond Court by hosting its first Fun Day. “The day started at 09:00 when the kids came together and had fun till 15:00. The Hanover Park Marching Band kicked off proceedings followed by Lomond Court’s very own Blikkie Band,” says Shanaaz Scholtz, organiser of the event. Thanks to all of the jumping castles, races

and dance competitions, kids could get rid of extra energy. “We also handed out approximately 800 sandwiches, hot dogs, juices, popcorn, candy floss and ice-cream to the kids during the day. “The Lomond Court NHW is keen to make a difference in our community and if we have to do it one court at a time, that is what we will do,” Scholtz says. The NHW only started in September but already huge changes have taken place since then. “It all started with the president of the group of 80 members, Myrtle Hendricks, who said ‘enough is enough’, she is taking Lomond Court back. Soon afterwards, Timothy Houston, chair, jumped on the bandwagon. He has been directly affected by the gang violence in our area as the life of his innocent son was taken a few years ago in the court. “Despite his loss, he pushes forward with great determination to make a difference in

the court and in the lives of the youth,” she giving them hope. says.

CAPE TOWN

Minstrels dish out a spectacular T

he Cape Town Street Parade (Tweede Nuwe­jaar), held on Saturday 4 January, again had thousands of spectators shaking their booties as they watched 42 Kaapse Klopse troupes march by.

People's Post is published by WP Media, a subsidiary of Media24.

Hosted by The Kaapse Klopse Karnivaal Association (KKKA) and supported by the City of Cape Town, the event featured approximately 10 000 individual performers. The groups marched from Hanover Street in District Six, along Darling Street past City Hall and the Grand Parade before taking on a route that came to an end in the Bo-Kaap. The City supported the event with funding, deployment of City services and assisting with logistical arrangements to ensure a safe event.

Mayor Dan Plato said it was a fantastic atmosphere. “The various minstrel groups put on a magnificent performance and ensured that the thousands of people lining the streets were thoroughly entertained. “We want to express our gratitude to all those who made the day possible and the troupes for a wonderful event which contributes a lot to the City’s cultural heritage, development and the local economy,” Plato said. Mayco member for safety and security, JP Smith, said the annual street parade is one

of Cape Town’s flagship events. “The City has a vision for the event’s longterm growth and we believe the three-year agreements we signed with some of the organisations are part of ensuring that. This will ensure the event is secure, safe and has certain guarantees which will assist the event organisers in attracting more corporate sponsorship,” he said. The street parade is just one of several minstrel, Christmas bands and Malay choir events that the City is supporting over the coming months.

Residents who were forcibly removed from District Six to Manenberg Avenue in Manenberg celebrated more than 50 years of community.

MANENBERG

Women celebrate community bond W

omen who were part of the first residents to move into Manenberg Avenue in Manenberg came together last month to celebrate their decades-long bond. It was 52 years ago that families were forcibly removed from District Six, when the area was declared a whites only as part of the Group Areas Act, to the Cape Flats. Everything was taken from them and all they had was each other; and so emerged a community of families that looked out for one another. Fondly remembering the stories from their childhood, these original inhabitants of Manenberg Avenue got together and decided it was time to honour the source of their bond that has lasted over 50 years. “They quickly started a WhatsApp group, where they decided to call themselves #TheOriginals, and they have the t-shirts to

prove it. The women decided to host a reunion, on Saturday 7 December at one of the many houses they all called home,” says Ashley-William van Heerden, a resident from Manenberg. “At the reunion the women were bursting with pride at how long their bond lasted. A heavy heap of nostalgia was first on the menu, as they hung up photos of their childhood in District Six and in Manenberg Avenue, family members that passed on and images of an era gone by,” he says. This was followed by a moment of silence to pay respect to the original inhabitants who have since died. They also hosted a special lunch to honour the most senior #Originals, who laid the foundations for the strong bond between original families. The honour did not stop there, as they also recognised the future generation, and

offered spoils to the children who now live in Manenberg Avenue. According to Van Heerden, Manenberg has changed since the families first moved there, but the women’s appetite for fun has not. “Quenching this appetite was an assortment of childhood games. From Kennetjie to five stones, they spent hours letting loose and giving in to their inner child. So much so, that they even had time to go back to Sunday school. They lined up along Manenberg Avenue and sang their hearts out, remembering all the lyrics from their Sunday School hymns. Onlookers were not disappointed,

and the singing attracted cheers and hooting from cars passing by,” Van Heerden says. The fun and games did not stop there, as #TheOriginals enjoyed a feast that included samosas, koeksisters, and frikkadels, to the sound of music that has kept them dancing for decades. They remembered, honoured, celebrated, ate, and danced. This was exactly the purpose of their first reunion, says the local – to showcase the power of community, and highlight the positives of a Manenberg that people often only speak negatively about.

FOUR SUSPECTS ARRESTED FOR POSSESSION OF CABLES: Over 300kg of cables were confiscated by the Lansdowne police when four males aged between 24 and 34 years were arrested after being found in possession of railway overhead cables worth R83 000. The incident took place on Thursday 9 January at 09:30 in Wetton Road in Lansdowne. The suspects were caught driving in two vehicles, a red Nissan bakkie and a white Mazda bakkie, both loaded with these cables just before the suspects could enter into the SA Metal scrapyard. The arrests came after a tipoff and a joint operation between the railway law enforcement and the Lansdowne police crime prevention. All suspects will be facing charges of possession of stolen property and will appear in the Wynberg magistrate’s court after investigation is completed. The fifth suspect jumped out and ran away and is still at large. Lansdowne station commander Col Shawn van Wyk had applauded excellent work done by the police officers in apprehending the suspects.

GRASSY PARK

Police make arrests T

he Grassy Park Community Policing Forum (CPF) congratulates the police on the confiscation of drugs from a dealer in Parkwood Estate. Police confiscated 595 heroin straws; 4x100 grams of raw heroin and 40 units of methamphetamine (tik) and drug paraphernalia valued at about R50 000. A 52-year-old woman was arrested for dealing in drugs. “Drugs destroy the future of our young people, and indeed our country, and should be eradicated with all the power of the law. We encourage the police to be firm and consistent in attacking the drug scourge together with the CPF, neighbourhood watches and community organisations,” says Melvin Jonkers, chair of the Grassy Park CPF. The Grassy Park police also deserve accolades for the successes during the 16 Days of Activism for No Violence Against Women and Children campaign. In an effort to make the area safer, members of the Grassy Park CPF patrol the area every morning from 03:00. “Hotspots where women were being robbed are patrolled and every day, dangerous weapons are confiscated. We believe that with such visibility the area becomes safer. The knives and other sharp objects being confiscated means a potential robbery of innocent women have been prevented,” he says. Any woman who is suddenly confronted with long knives will get a fright and becomes easy target for the robbers. The hotspots patrolled are now quiet and the CPF is glad that every criminal frustrated is a crime not committed. The Grassy Park police are all geared to curb crime in the area and in conjunction with the CPF and neighbourhood watches and will adopt a zero tolerance anti-crime approach. The Grassy Park CPF calls upon residents to come forward with information about drugs and guns. . In December firearms and drugs were also confiscated. A search warrant was executed at Joanne Road in Lansdowne by members of the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigations (DPI) which resulted in the arrest of a 29-year-old man for the possession of drugs and two unlicensed firearms. These were found in the suspect’s bedroom inside built-in cupboards. 50 grams of cocaine valued at R50 000 plus cash of R6 050, and the two 9mm firearms with magazines and two live rounds. The suspect was arrested on charges of possession of unlicensed firearms and drugs. He is due to appear in the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court after the investigation is completed. One firearm was reported stolen in April at Krugersdorp in Gauteng and another one from a security company in Cape Town. Lansdowne station commander, Col Shawn Van Wyk applauded members of the special unit and further assured the Lansdowne community that the police will tackle crime. .

Load shedding has also taken its toll on softball fixtures of the Cape Town Softball Association, especially the male competition which is played during the week. The second half of the season kicked off with a double header at the Turfhall Softball Stadium in Athlone this past weekend, Saturday 11 January. Westridge Yankees came out tops in the Men’s Major Knockout encounter against Pirates on Sunday. With the score level pegged at 2-2, Yankees came out in full steam in the first tie-breaker innings recording 4 runs. Jason Carelse, with a 0-3 offensive count at that stage of the game, came to light and cleared the fence with 2 runners on base.
